Save the Children Vietnam's Deputy Director Doan Anh Tuan said the most recent reports show the superstorm has slowed as it makes landfall today.

"The good news is the Typhoon has slightly weakened," Tuan Doan said. "But the bad news is the storm has changed direction and is now headed for the north central region of Vietnam, where communities are not as prepared as communities in the central region."

"Given the devastation in the Philippines, we are very concerned about children and the elderly people in north central regions, who have not been evacuated and who are not prepared for the storm.

"We predict that lots of houses will be damaged by the strong winds and flooding from the rain and storm surges. The rain is getting heavier now and I predict the wind will pick up soon as the storm approaches."
