October /https://mkweather.com/2020/10/17/vietnam-62-dead-and-6-tropical-waves-next-2000-mm-of-rain-is-expected/; https://mkweather.com/2020/10/14/53-died-15-missing-after-disastrous-floods-in-vietnam-cambodia-laos-next-tropical-threat-hit-region-on-friday-16-october/; https://mkweather.com/2020/10/11/vietnam-hits-next-3-tropical-systems-tropical-storm-linfa-and-depressions-93w-and-94w-it-makes-significant-landfall-in-philippines-laos-cambodia-thailand-and-myanmar-too// and cause historic floods – the worst in decades.

Floods has affected more than 5 millions people in Central Vietnam, Hue region, last days.

Now, possible Typhoon Saudel (expected sustained winds are 75 mph / 120 km/h, while criterium for typhoon Category 1 is 118 km/h) is on way to Central Vietnam and situation should be even more critical. Last 6 tropical waves killed 105 people and 27 are still missing.

Tropical systems has aimed to Central Vietnam, where regionally should October rainfall reach 3000 – 4000 mm.

Unfortunately, Typhoon Saudel probably won´t be last dot after deadly tropical waves in the region. After Saudel, with expected wind gusts up to 180 km/h and next hundreds of millimeters of rain, next tropical storm or typhoon will appear over region already in last October 2020 days.

The most of precipitation haven´t to fall in north-Central Vietnam up to 5. November 2020, but by tropical systems will be bothered northern Philippines, too.

A lot of precipitation is during the next 16 days expected in southern Vietnam, parts of Cambodia, southern Thailand, southern Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia, too.

Its very possible, that death tools in the region will be arising.
