It will then meet a cold spell from the north and weaken.

By 4 a.m. Thursday it would have moved to 100 km north of Quang Binh Province, home to famous caves including the world's largest Son Doong, with winds of 74 kph.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the storm's intensity peaked early Tuesday morning when it packed winds of 145 kph.

On Wednesday night, when it approaches the central Vietnamese coast, it would weaken and continue to do so as it makes landfall.

Nesat is the sixth storm to hit Vietnam this year.

It follows the recent Storm Son Ca that caused flooding in the central region and killed 10 people.

By January another three to five storms and tropical depressions are expected, most of them impacting the central and southern regions.
