The typhoon has weakened during its stationary movement in east of Vietnam. It is going to be influenced by Typhoon MITAG, and may follow it.

Typhoon HAGIBIS now contains a part of Vietnam within its 30kts wind area, and some people start evacuating. This typhoon, however, stalled its movement before making landfall, and, accroding to the forecast, may turn backward to move away from Vietnam. This typhoon may exihibit complex movement due to its proximity to Typhoon MITAG.

Typhoon HAGIBIS has been moving westward in South China Sea, but accroding to Japan Meteorological Agency, it will stop moving westward around here, and move backward to east after that. The southern part of Vietnam is partially overlapped with the area of 30kt winds or more, but it is not likely to suffer from 50kt winds if the forecast is proved to be correct. South China Sea, however, is going to be rough for some time to come due to the slowly wandering typhoon.
