Up to ten storms and tropical depressions are forecast to hit the East Vietnam Sea in the remaining months of 2022, most of which will occur in October and November.
Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh, head of the National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, recently sent a document to authorities in provinces and cities regarding the response to natural disasters in the last months of this year.
Natural disasters have repeatedly occurred in many localities since the beginning of the year, causing great damage to the lives, properties, and production of local residents, the document stated.
The situation will continue to be complicated and unpredictable in the remaining months of 2022.
About eight to ten storms and tropical depressions will be active in the East Vietnam Sea, of which five may directly affect the country’s mainland, the document quoted the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting as saying.
Most of the storms and tropical depressions will occur in October and November.
Rainfall in the northern, central, and Central Highlands regions will be higher than the average of previous years, posing a high risk of flash floods, landslides, and inundation.
In order to properly prevent and respond to upcoming natural disasters, as well as overcome the consequences, Deputy PM Thanh asked all localities to make necessary preparations, stay updated on the weather development, and prioritize the protection of people’s lives.
The deputy premier requested the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to work with relevant agencies to provide prompt and accurate forecasts and assessment.
