Learning from Typhoon Mirinae: Urbanization and Climate Change in Quy Nhon City, Vietnam

On November 2, 2009, typhoon Mirinae slammed into the coast of central Vietnam killing 122 people and causing $280 million in damage to property. While typhoons strike Vietnam each fall, the severity of this storm caught both meteorologists and local disaster relief professionals off guard. However, though storms like Mirinae are infrequent, they are not unusual, and storms of this magnitude have historically occurred about every 20 years. This report focuses on analyzing the causes of typhoon Mirinae’s severity and, using approved scenarios for climate change, assessing the potential impacts resulting from implementation of the Area Plan for Nhon Binh to 2020.
