The depression will enter the northeastern territorial water of the East Sea with its maximum speed of 20- 25 kilometer per hour today. And then, it is going to develop into a storm. 

By 7pm today, the storm will be at 20, 3 degrees north latitude and 118, 3 degrees east longitude at 790 kilometer toward the northwest. The maximum wind near the center gusts level 8- 10. 

Because of its influence, the northeastern territorial water of the north East Sea will see powerful wind of level 6- 10 and sea rough. 

In addition, the powerful operation of the southwest monsoon will bring medium- heavy rain, thunderstorm, strong wind and big wave in the southern territorial waters of the East Sea from Binh Thuan to Ca Mau, from Ca Mau to Kien Giang and Gulf of Thailand.
