Vietnam is evacuating tens of thousands of people in the path of Typhoon Nari, after the powerful storm left 13 dead in the Philippines.

Nari is expected to slam into central Vietnam tomorrow morning, after ripping off rooftops, toppling trees and triggering flash floods in the northern Philippines over the weekend.

Authorities in the central provinces of Thua Thien and Da Nang were moving roughly 66,000 people in vulnerable coastal area to safety.

Vietnam is hit by around eight to 10 tropical storms every year, often resulting in loss of life and heavy material damage.
