Damrey makes landfall, downgraded to tropical storm

Good evening from the Western Pacific Weather team.

Damrey made landfall in Vietnam during the day Saturday, and it has now been downgraded to a tropical storm. It is quickly moving its way through the interior of the Indochina Peninsula and will continue to produce a significant amount of rainfall (adding a few hundred millimeters over the next 24-48 hours), creating concerns for landslides in Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. Strong winds will also prevail during the overnight period. The storm will weaken into a tropical depression during the latter part of Sunday.

Otherwise, it looks like the rest of the Western Pacific is relatively calm, and we aren’t expecting much in terms of additional tropical activity over the next 24 hours.
