(PHILIPPINES) - The deadly storm that hit the Philippines on Friday is inching closer to Vietnam. Forecasters predict the typhoon will make landfall there Monday morning.

Typhoon Haiyan weakened to 101 miles-per-hour Sunday as it approached central and northern Vietnam.

Despite weakening, the storm is likely to cause heavy rains, flooding, strong winds and mudslides, as it makes its way north in the South China Sea.

The government's website said,Vietnamese authorities have moved more than 880,000 people in central provinces to safe zones.

At least six people were killed due to heavy rain and strong winds, state media reported.

Several hundred domestic and international flights have been canceled ahead of the typhoon.

In the central Philippines on Sunday, a senior official confirmed that at least 10,000 people were killed.

Huge waves swept away entire coastal villages and devastated the region's main city.
