Unseasonal rains of up to 400 millimeters are expected to lash central Vietnam later this week, according to the National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting.

Unseasonal downpours with an average volume of 100-300 millimeters will batter the localities between north-central Thua Thien-Hue and south-central Khanh Hoa Province from Thursday to Saturday. The rainfall may reach 400 millimeters in some areas.

Rains of 50-150 millimeters are also forecast for north-central Quang Tri Province, south-central Ninh Thuan Province, and the southern part of the Central Highlands.

The National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control asked competent authorities in the affected provinces to closely monitor weather conditions and remain updated on the latest forecasts in order to respond to the unseasonal rains and minimize damage.

Authorities should examine residential areas along rivers and streams, and in low-lying areas, that are at a high risk of flooding, flash floods, and landslides so that they can evacuate people in a timely manner if necessary.

Anti-flooding measures should also be taken in urban areas, industrial parks, and crop fields.
