Nalgae entered the East Vietnam Sea early on Sunday morning, becoming the seventh storm to hit Vietnam this year, the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting reported, adding that the storm’s wind speed will reach its highest level in the next two days.

As of 4:00 am on Sunday, Storm Nalgae was unleashing winds of 89-102km per hour and gusts up to 133km an hour.

The storm will travel northwest over the next 24 hours and pick up strength.

It will be located 590 kilometers east of Vietnam's Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago by 4:00 am on Monday, with wind speed increasing to between 89 and 117km per hour.

Nalgae will continue heading northwest over the next 24-48 hours.

As of 4:00 am on Tuesday, the storm will be situated 550 kilometers northeast of Hoang Sa.

The highest wind speed will be around 103-117km per hour, while gusts will reach up to 149km an hour.

Nalgae will then move toward China’s Guangdong Province and gradually weaken.

The Japan Meteorological Agency also predicted that Storm Nalgae’s highest wind speed will be about 117km per hour.

Due to the influence of the storm, rough seas, strong winds, and waves as high as five to nine meters will occur in the northern and central sections of the East Vietnam Sea.

Before entering the East Vietnam Sea, Nalgae had swept through the Philippines, leaving more than 80 people dead and missing.
