At 1pm September 26, the storm’s eye was about 580km to the east of Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago.

Huong said the storm packs wind at 118-149km per hour with gust of over 118km per hour.

From late September 27, rough sea with 3-5m high waves is expected along the central coast from Thua Thien-Hue to Binh Dinh provinces.

As of 1pm September 28, the storm’s eye will be on the central coastal region, between Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Ngai provinces.

Central localities are rushing to brace for the storm, including evacuating residents from risky areas.

The central province of Khanh Hoa will ban all vessels from going to sea from before 2pm September 27. The provincial People’s Committee has required local authorities to supervise the evacuation of residents from high risks areas.

Da Nang and three central provinces have also let over one million students stay home to take shelter from typhoon Noru.
