Tropical Storm Sinlaku is now rapidly weakening over Indochina after making landfall in Vietnam late last night. The system was last located approximately 340km north of Ho Chi Minh. Maximum sustained winds are down to 75ph with gusts of up to 95kph. TS Sinlaku is moving westward at 20kph.

Latest satellite image shows the core of Sinlaku has now moved inland and is currently crossing into Cambodia. Rains and strong winds are still affecting parts of Southern Vietnam but will soon move westward along with the storm. Aside from Cambodia, parts of Laos and Thailand will also see some rain showers associated with Sinlaku.

Tropical Storm Sinlaku will continue rapidly weakening over the next 24 hours as it moves across Indochina. Widespread rains will linger across the region so flooding is still likely in many places. Sinlaku is forecast to completely dissipate by tomorrow.

This is our final update for Tropical Storm Sinlaku. A low pressure area near the Caroline Islands is being closely watched as it could develop into a Tropical Cyclone later in the week.
