Vietnamese head to shelters as country prepares for Typhoon Haiyan

Vietnam is bracing itself for the arrival of Typhoon Haiyan.

Having caused devastation in the Philippines, it is now heading towards the north of the country.

Although the storm is significantly weaker, it likely to cause strong winds, flooding and mudslides as it makes its way across the South China Sea.

State media is reporting six people have already died in heavy rains.

More than 800,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in northern Vietnam and moved to shelters in safe zones.

Boats have been called back into harbour and Danang and Hue airports were empty with hundreds of flights cancelled.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
