EFFECTS & HAZARDS
MINDULLE's circulation has begun to deteriorate as its eye started to fill-in, due to land interaction. The center has started to make landfall over the southern part of Northern Vietnam. Tropical Storm force winds reaching 100 kph with higher gusts, accompanied with moderate to heavy rains can be expected along its inner bands, especially near the center of the storm. Meanwhile, its outer bands (w/ light to moderate rains & winds of up to 65 kph) continues to spread across the whole of Northern Vietnam, and portions of Laos and Hainan Island.
