The East Vietnam Sea is expected to be hit by two tropical depressions or storms in August, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting (NCHF) warned on Tuesday.

The NCHF said it was monitoring the possibility of weather disturbances that could evolve into tropical depressions or storms in the East Vietnam Sea over the next five to seven days.

As of Tuesday, rains and strong thunderstorms were recorded in the northern and central parts of the East Vietnam Sea, as well as the maritime areas from Ca Mau Province to Kien Giang Province and in the Gulf of Thailand.

Statistics from 2002 to 2021 show that the East Vietnam Sea was often struck by about one to two tropical depressions or storms in August.

In August 2005 and 2020, the maritime area recorded three tropical depressions or storms.

There were no tropical depressions or storms in August 2011 and 2015.

There is a 90 percent chance that the East Vietnam Sea will be hit by one to two tropical depressions or storms this August, the NCHF said.

The weather phenomena will likely affect the northern part of the East Vietnam Sea and the coast from northern Quang Ninh Province to north-central Thanh Hoa Province.

The NCHF also listed some powerful storms that struck Vietnam in August.

In 2010, Storm Mindulle unleashed winds at 75km per hour and gusts of up to 100km an hour when it made landfall in north-central Thanh Hoa and Nghe An Provinces.

In 2012, Storm Kai Tai with wind speed of up to 120km per hour was recorded in the East Vietnam Sea.
