More than 600,000 people were evacuated as super typhoon Haiyan veered towards Vietnam, after the storm smashed through the Philippines killing thousands and causing widespread devastation.

The storm is expected to strike tomorrow morning after changing course prompting mass evacuations in northern Nghe An province around 230 kilometres from the captial Hanoi.

However, many of the estimated 200,000 evacuated in four central provinces yesterday  have been allowed to return to their homes.

The monster typhoon is believed to have killed more than 10,000 people in the Philippines.
