Earlier, PM Phuc and his entourage visited and presented gifts to several poor families in Tu Nghia district and Chau O town's secondary school in Binh Son district of central Quang Ngai province. These families and the school suffered heavy losses caused by the storm.

Storm Molave swept through many localities in the central region, causing torrential downpours and strong wind in the night of October 27.

It destroyed dozens of houses and blew the roofs of tens of thousands of others.

After making a landfall in the region from Da Nang city to Phu Yen province in the afternoon of October 28, the storm weakened into a tropical depression, delivering drenching rains and strong gusts to central localities.

Quang Nam province appeared to be among the hardest-hit localities.
