"This is a very strong typhoon that will impact a large area," Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said before the storm made landfall.

Some 310,000 homes were already damaged from last week's deadly flooding, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), with the organization warning that close to 1.2 million people were "in severe danger and in need of relief."

"It is estimated that at least 150,000 people are at immediate risk of food shortages and hunger after thousands of hectares of crops have been destroyed," the IFRC said last week.

Vietnamese authorities made plans to evacuate about 1.3 million people ahead of Typhoon Molave's landfall, and the military mobilized about 250,000 troops and 2,300 vehicles to be used for search and rescue missions, state-run Vietnam News Agency reported.

Though October is part of Vietnam's raining season, the country has been inundated by more bad weather than usual.

Molave is the fourth named storm system to make landfall in the country this month and the ninth this year, according to VNA.

Storms and a cold snap at the start of October prompted flooding in Vietnam's central cities and provinces, but the flooding that struck last week was "some of the worst we have seen in decades," said Nguyen Thi Xuan Thu, the president of Vietnam's Red Cross Society.

VNA reported that more than 7,200 hectares of food crops (17,791 acres) were destroyed and more than 691,000 cattle and poultry were killed or swept away in flood water.
