Typhoon Noru weakened on Wednesday morning after making landfall and wreaking havoc in central Vietnam, while heavy downpours are still in the forecast over the next few days.

The typhoon made landfall between Da Nang City and Quang Nam Province at around 3:30 am on Wednesday, unleashing winds of 103-133km per hour, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

At 7:00 am the same day, the wind speed decreased to between 62 and 74km an hour.

The storm is expected to travel west in the next 12 hours and be downgraded to a tropical depression and later a low-pressure area.

Due to the influence of the storm, provinces in central Vietnam and the northern part of the Central Highlands recorded massive rainfall of about 200-300 millimeters on Tuesday night.

More downpours are forecast for these localities on Wednesday and Thursday, posing a high risk of flash floods and landslides in mountainous areas as well as serious flooding in low-lying locations.

On Wednesday morning, scores of uprooted trees were recorded in Da Nang, according to the observations of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters.

Many roofs of houses were also seen lying on the streets.

Some residents began cleaning up areas around their homes even though the city was still affected by strong winds.
