Tropical Storm Kirogi hits Vietnam

Tropical Storm Kirogi has hit Vietnam bringing torrential rain.

The storm weakened before making landfall, meaning the sustained winds were only 55 kilometres per hour when it hit the coast.

However, the rain was still very heavy, with 182 millimetres of rain reported in Quy Nhon, and 142mm in the historic city of Hue.

This is a large amount of rain and it falls at what is always a wet time of year

Hue, for example, expects approximately 600mm of rain in November. This is comparable to the amount of rain that London expects in an entire year.

The excessive amount of rain has prompted the flood prevention department of Vietnam to issue a number of flood warnings.

It has also caused major problems for the salt farms in the southern province of Ninh Thuane.

"Our village lives on salt farming. Such rainstorm affects our production. I hope that the rainstorm would go away soon," said Nguyen Thanh Trung, a local resident.

The generous November rainfall of the region is often delivered in the form of tropical storms, with approximately 10 storms hitting Vietnam every year.

The storms can form at any time during the year, but they are most common between May and November.

Kirogi is the sixth named storm to make a direct impact on the country this year, but there have also been a number of other systems which have brought torrential rain.

These have either been too weak to be given a name, or have only grazed the country

South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal. Increases Oscar Pistorius’ prison sentence to 13 years and five months Friday Nov 24,2017

Oscar Pistorius’ prison sentence has been increased to 13 years and five months by South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal.

The court on Friday Nov 24,2017 upheld an appeal by prosecutors, who challenged Pistorius’ original six-year jail sentence saying it was too lenient for his conviction of murder in the shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

Pistorius has served just over a year of that six-year sentence. Pistorius shot Steenkamp in the pre-dawn hours of Valentine’s Day 2013.

He was initially convicted of manslaughter but also had that conviction overturned and replaced with a murder conviction by the Supreme Court

Zimbabwe’s political drama: A timeline
