Storm Lupit could intensify over central Vietnam

Storm Lupit, with winds gusting up to 120-150 kilometers per hour, is forecast to pass over the Philippines causing rough waters in the East Sea. The storm could intensify and head towards central Vietnam within the week, due to warm temperatures in the East Sea (over 27 degrees Celsius), according to the national weather center.

The storm is threatening to make landfall in two to three days on the Philippines’ Luzon island where residents have already endured two devastating storms in the last three weeks.

A tropical low-pressure system that has formed in the East Sea 80 km from China’s Hainan island, is causing torrential rain and flooding in central provinces.
