Tropical Storm Nari continues to rapidly weaken as it moves farther inland across Indochina. The storm center is now tracking into Laos and was last located approximately 500km southeast of the city of Vientiane. Maximum sustained winds are down to 75kph with gusts of up to 95kph. TS Nari is moving westward at 20kph.

Latest satellite image shows a continuously unraveling storm with weakening convection and a degrading core. Nari made landfall earlier this morning as a Category 1 Typhoon near the city of Da Nang. It brought winds of up to 140kph along with very heavy rainfall. Da Nang itself recorded 220mm of rain while nearby areas saw amounts of 100 to 160mm.

Heavy rainfall will continue across the region despite the winds weakening considerably. Tropical Storm Nari should completely dissipate by tomorrow but its remnants will still bring precipitation across Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia in the next one to two days.

This will be our final update on Tropical Storm Nari. Please stay tuned for our update on Typhoon Wipha as it moves closer towards Tokyo, Japan.
