Tropical Storm Battering South China, Vietnam Next

“flooding and mudslides are sure to result…”

After leaving more than 40 people dead in the Philippines, Tropical Storm Nock-Ten is now bearing down on South China with Vietnam next in its path.

Nock-Ten, which has remained a tropical storm since briefly reaching typhoon status Tuesday night, will continue to cross the South Chinese island of Hainan today EDT (Friday night local time).

After spending some time over the Gulf of Tonkin and restrengthening into a stronger tropical storm, Nock-Ten will make its final landfall in northern Vietnam on Saturday morning EDT.
