Tropical Depression Haitang Update #7 Brief

Haitang has weakened to Tropical Depression as it moves over Central Vietnam. It was last located approximately 120km west northwest of Da Nang or about 450km south of Hanoi. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to 55kph gusting to 85kph. Haitang is moving westward at 20kph.

TD Haitang made landfall earlier this morning and is currently across Vietnam. Convective activity remains strong and is beginning to affect Laos. Latest rain reports from Vietnam indicate rainfall amounts of around 100mm. We expect another 50 to 100mm of rain to fall today.


Haitang will continue moving westward and will eventually move into Laos. It should dissipate later tonight although its remnants will continue bringing rains across parts of Indochina.
