It is forecast that from Tuesday to Sunday, heavy rains will occur in central provinces with rainfall of 300-500mm, with rainfall from the central province of Ha Tinh to Quang Ngai province predicted at 500-700mm. After Sunday, heavy rain is predicted to last for days.

"Heavy rain is forecast to occur from Ha Tinh central province to Binh Dinh province. In some areas, the rainfall could be up to 1,500mm. This is a very dangerous situation," Tran Quang Hoai, deputy director of the Central Steering Committee on Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, said at a meeting on Tuesday.
He called on ministries, agencies and localities to respond to the tropical depression and heavy rain, ensuring safety for people and infrastructure. For coastal areas, localities should implement measures to ensure safety for aquaculture.

On the mainland, it was necessary to immediately check the sea dyke system, especially dykes in Nghe An province, Hoai said. He asked localities to check the infrastructure system, residential areas in lowland areas and prepare evacuation plans to ensure safety.
