Emergency appeal launched after Typhoon Wutip tears through communities in Viet Nam
According to a report by the Central Committee for Flood and Storm Control, the Da Nang provincial authorities are working on plans to evacuate 11,000 households (55,000 people) before Nari makes landfall. Meanwhile, another four districts (including Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Nam), the first three of which were affected by Typhoon Wutip just two weeks ago, have also been evacuating their residents to safer areas.

The district of Quang Binh, the district most affected by Typhoon Wutip and still covered in debris, has ordered the evacuation of 27,000 people from seven coastal towns and districts that are at risk of flash floods and landslides. The evacuation of a further 73,000 people is underway in Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Nam.  

Since 6am today, the Committees for Flood and Storm Control in the provinces between Quang Binh and Khanh Hoa have recalled 44,343 boats and ships to find anchorage.

Early on Monday morning, the Viet Nam Red Cross Society headquarters issued an official letter to their chapters in Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien-Hue, Da Nang and Quang Nam advising them to be prepared to respond to the eleventh storm to hit Viet Nam during this year’s typhoon season.

Families like Yen’s are still in a state of shock after Typhoon Wutip. The potential damage that Typhoon Nari could inflict on the same communities hit by Wutip will serve as a major setback to their recovery.
