Tropical Storm Rammasun headed towards Hanoi

Not that I want to worry friends and relatives too much but there’s a Category 1 Tropical Storm (Typhoon a.k.a. Hurricane) headed our way this weekend. Not great timing for us as we have our first guests in the form of newly-weds Kat and George who are spending their honeymoon in Vietnam and are taking the opportunity to stay with us for a couple of days.

The storm has already wreaked havoc in the Philippines but, thankfully, by the time it reaches Vietnam it is predicted to have calmed down to “only” a Category 1 Tropical Storm. Winds shouldn’t get higher than around 75 mph but, still, we’ll probably have to stay indoors for a bit on Friday night through part of Saturday!

Here’s a recent satellite image from the Philippines:
