A tropical depression in the East Vietnam Sea on Saturday afternoon strengthened into a storm, becoming the first to threaten Vietnam this year, according to the national weather center.

The storm, internationally known as Talim, was spotted some 850km southeast of China’s Leizhou Peninsula as of 4:00 pm on Saturday, packing strong winds of 62-74km per hour.

Storm Talim could move northwest at 10-15km per hour and intensify in the next 24 hours, said the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

By 4:00 pm on Sunday, Talim is forecast to be located some 530km southeast of the Leizhou Peninsula.

The storm is expected to move west-northwest at a maximum speed of 15km per hour and continue to pick up strength over the next 24-38 hours.

It is predicted to be situated some 190km east of the Leizhou Peninsula by 4:00 pm on Monday, then entering the Gulf of Tonkin before gradually weakening over the next 72 hours.

Due to the impact of Talim, the areas in the north of the East Vietnam Sea could experience powerful winds and gusts, in addition to rough seas and 4-6m high waves.​
