Vietnam was evacuating over 800,000 people as powerful Typhoon Noru is speeding up toward the country's central region on Tuesday, state media reported. In Da Nang and Quang Nam province, a curfew will be enabled on Tuesday evening.

People are forbidden to go out except for those carrying official duties, local TV said. The weather agency forecasts the typhoon can pack winds up to 180 kilometres per hour when it reaches Vietnam in the early hours of Wednesday. Vietnam is prone to the severe weather with dozens of tropical storms and typhoons hitting its coast every year.
