Typhoon Doksuri has been causing rough seas along Vietnam's northern coast just ahead of its expected entry into the East Sea Friday.

On Thursday afternoon the storm lay around 570 kilometers east of the Philippines's Luzon Island, with wind speeds of 62-74 kilometers per hour and moving northwest, according to Vietnam's National Hydro meteorological and Forecasting Center.

The typhoon is the third to hit the East Sea this year and the six in the northwestern Pacific.

Pakhar, the first typhoon to enter the East Sea, hit Ho Chi Minh City and nearby provinces on the night of April 1, killing four and knocking over houses and trees.

Talim, the second, sank boats earlier this month but caused no human casualties.
