In the next 24-26 hours, the storm would move towards the Gulf of Tonkin with the speed of 15-20 kilometres per hour.
Between 36 and 48 hours to come, the storm would make landfall into localities in the south of the northern delta region and northern central region and then weaken into a low-pressure system.
