Vientiane (VNA) - Lao weather authorities have warned that typhoon Goni may hit the country after moving away from the Philippines.

According to a report from the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology under the Lao Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, typhoon Goni is expected to reach Vietnam before hitting Laos between November 5 and 6.

Due to impacts of the storm, provinces in southern Laos are forecast to record heavy rains.

Southern Laos was hit by typhoon Molave last week, seeing strong winds and rainfall for many hours, which damaged trees, houses, and the farmland.

Some 51,000ha of farmland have been destroyed by heavy rains and flooding caused by typhoon Molave in 12 districts of the Savannakhet province, according to the report.

In Thailand, the flood crisis since October 7 has left nine dead, two missing and affected over 91,600 households nationwide./.
