Here is our latest Video Update on Severe Tropical Storm/Typhoon Kai-Tak (Formerly Bagyong Helen). The system made landfall as a typhoon earlier this morning along the coast of Leizhou Peninsula. Kai-Tak is now moving along the coast of Guangxi Province and could move into Northeastern Vietnam later tonight. The system will continue weakening but will still bring rains across much of Guangxi, Hainan, and Northern Vietnam. Kai-Tak is forecast to move north of Hanoi tomorrow morning (Saturday) and could dissipate as early as tomorrow evening.
