In January 2022, a dual system of storm and tropical depression may be expected to affect both the Central and Southern regions. 

Yesterday afternoon, the National Center for Hydrology Meteorology Forecasting submitted a report to the National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control on the potentialities of a storm in the East Sea next several days.

Currently, a tropical depression has just formed at around 2,000 kilometers far from the southern Phillippines in the northwestern territorial waters of the Pacific Ocean.

It is expected that the tropical low-pressure system would intensify into a storm and then it will enter the South- East Sea, becoming the ninth storm in 2021 which affects the mid- Central and South- Central regions.

To proactively deal with the storm, the Standing Office of the National Steering Committee of Natural Disaster Prevention and Control proposed its sub-divisions in provinces and cities from Quang Binh to Ca Mau have preparedness for the upcoming storm, monitor closely the development of the ninth storm, promptly give information to captains, vessels at sea, be ready for harvesting and production plan, ensure safety on people and properties.

The mid-Central and the south- Central provinces are urgently overcoming the consequences of recent floods.
