HANOI–Vietnam has ordered the evacuation of more than 58,000 people from central coastal areas and called boats ashore ahead of a typhoon that is forecast to make landfall late Monday.
Packed with wind speeds of up to 149 kilometers an hour, typhoon Wutip was 170 kilometers east of the central coast at 0000 GMT and was moving west-northwest at 20 kilometers an hour, according to the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

Thanks for the heads up hknudzkknexnt. Here's a pic.

It's pretty close to where I live, we've been getting almost constant monsoons lately and now more to come. At least it keeps the bull frogs happy.

The compound where I live in Siem reap is partially flooded. We've still got another month of heavy rain then it stops for six months and everybody misses it.
