Typhoon Nesat, which wreaked havoc in the Philippines earlier this week, raced across China's Hainan Island on Thursday, making landfall in northern Vietnam Friday afternoon.
Nesat was downgraded to a tropical storm just before making landfall in northern Vietnam on Friday with maximum sustained winds of up to 73 mph, according to the national weather forecasting center. High winds whipped through the streets of the capital, Hanoi, as heavy rains battered the region.
On Tuesday, Nesat barreled into the Philippines, demolishing seawalls, flooding rivers, and leaving at least 43 dead and 30 missing. The storm caused some of the worst flooding in decades around the capital Manila.
The storm then crossed the South China Sea and flooded streets across the southern Chinese island of Hainan on Thursday. Nesat forced nearly 300,000 people to flee their homes, according to China's Xinhau News Agency.
Nesat grounded flights and closed markets as it swept near Hong Kong. A total of 25 people sought medical treatment at Hong Kong pubic hospitals and there were numerous reports of fallen trees and scaffolding around the city, according to the Chinese government.
So far there have been no reports of any deaths in China.
Meanwhile, the strong Typhoon Nalgae eyed the northern tip of the Philippines' main island Luzon. Packing maximum sustained winds of 130 mph - with gusts up to 160mph - Nalgae is set to hit the already battered island Saturday morning.
