Vietnam readies response to Super Typhoon Noru’s lash

Vietnam Pham-Minh-Chinh
Hanoi, Sep 27 (Prensa Latina) Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on Tuesday urged authorities in the country's central region and the Western Highlands to take all necessary measures to respond to the havoc caused by Super Typhoon Noru.

Minh Chinh directed to intensify the calls for fishermen and boats to seek shelter, ensure the safety of fish farms and livelihoods for people, students, and tourists, and protect heritage sites, infrastructure, and economic facilities to minimize damages.

The head of Government talked via videoconference with the administrations of eight provinces and cities, 88 district-level localities, and 1,155 communes and districts, where the damage from Noru, which is moving the East Sea, could occur in the coming hours.

The fourth tropical storm is heading for Vietnam’s central region with a speed between 20 and 25 kilometers per hour and maintains maximum sustained winds of up to 166 kilometers per hour.

According to the National Hydrometeorological Forecasting Center, Noru will continue to intensify in the coming hours.

In addition to the strong winds, the super typhoon will bring heavy rains, so it is also necessary to be prepared to deal with landslides and floods following the storm, Minh Chinh said, quoted by Voice of Vietnam.
