Many parts of Vietnam’s central region are forecast to experience downours from November 25 to 27 due to the influence of a cold air mass.

Vu Anh Tuan, an official from the national weather center, said on Thursday that the cold front is moving from the north to the south in Vietnam, thereby bringing rains to the central region in the next few days.

The coastal provinces from Quang Tri to Khanh Hoa will be hit by medium to heavy rains with rainfall estimated at up to 600 millimeters.

This deluge of rain will not be heavier than the wave of downpours which swept through the region from November 13 to 17, said Tuan.

He also warned of potential flash floods and landslides in mountainous areas following the lashing rains.

The provincial and municipal administrations in the central region were told to proactively brace for these natural disasters.

In particular, residents in low-lying areas and flood-prone ones should be quickly evacuated to a safer shelter.

The cold air mass is forecast to intensify at the end of November.

Showers, paired with thunderstorms, will batter the Central Highlands and southern regions in late November, according to the national weather center.
