Tropical Depression Gaemi Update #8 [FINAL]

Gaemi has now weakened into a Tropical Depression after making landfall in Vietnam last night. The system is now moving into Cambodia and is also starting to dissipate. Maximum winds are around 40 to 60kph. Gaemi is moving westward at 20kph.

Latest image shows the core of Gaemi is barely recognizable now as it continues to move across land. It made landfall in Vietnam yesterday bringing strong winds and rains of up to 80mm. As it moves across Cambodia today, rains of up to 50mm will still be possible. Gaemi could completely dissipate later this afternoon although its remnants, along with the southwest monsoon, can still bring rains across Cambodia and Thailand in the next 2 days.

Both the JTWC and JMA have given their final warnings for this system, likewise this will be our final update for Tropical Depression Gaemi. Meanwhile in the Western Pacific, a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert has been put out by JTWC for the high possibility of seeing a Tropical Depression in the next 24 hours. This LPA, which is located over the Philippine Sea, is still weak and will continue to slowly consolidate in the next 2 to 3 days. We'll have our complete Tropical Update later this afternoon.
Issued (2330 UTC) 730am PhT 100712
