Red flags went up at the Bali Hai Pier yesterday warn tour boats about the Thai Meteorological Department’s weather warnings in regard to tropical storm Wipha, currently sitting over northern Vietnam.

Tropical Storm Wipha, which formed in the South China Sea between the Philippines and China, will bring the risk of flooding and locally damaging winds to the region.

Wipha will track westward near the coast of China’s Guangxi province before making landfall again into northern Vietnam this weekend.

Wipha is expected to weaken as it approaches the Vietnam coast; however, no matter the status of the system, Wipha will bring heavy, tropical downpours. – Accuweather.com
