Storm Koguma weakens into tropical depression, no damage reported

HANOI (Vietnam News/ANN) -- Storm Koguma, the second storm to hit Vietnam this year, weakened into a tropical depression on Sunday after reaching the central province of Nghe An.
The storm caused heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the northern region, including Hanoi, and in the central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Quang Trị.
No casualties or property damage were reported.
High school entrance exam sitters in Hanoi had a difficult commute to their test venues on Sunday because of the rain.
Risks of flash floods and landslides were forecast in the northern provinces of Hoa Binh, Son La, Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Phu Tho, Tuyen Quang, Thai Nguyen, Quang Ninh, Lang Son, Lai Chau and Dien Bien, as well as the central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Ha Tinh.
Moderate and heavy rainfall was forecast to continue in the northwest region Monday morning.
The Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control has been collaborating with the Directorate of Fisheries and the Border Guard Command to keep track of fishing vessels at seas, as well as maintaining communication with fishermen to help them avoid the storm.
