Vietnam is evacuating tens of thousands of people in the path of Typhoon Nari, state media said Monday, after the powerful storm left 13 dead in the Philippines.
Nari is expected to slam into central Vietnam on Tuesday morning, after ripping off rooftops, toppling trees and triggering flash floods in the northern Philippines over the weekend.
"Very strong winds are expected from later Monday. There might be heavy rains of up to 500 millimetres (20 inches) over the next few days," said Bui Minh Tang, head of Vietnam's national weather forecast centre.
