On Sunday, Vietnam's central coast was spared from Typhoon Haiyan's deadly force after the storm's expected trajectory changed and headed north, and remained about 100 miles off the coast, USA Today reports
As of Sunday morning, Haiyan was the equivalent of a Category 1 hurricane. Winds were of 92 mph and weakening, according to Weather Channel meteorologist Michael Palmer.
"The typhoon should make landfall in northern Vietnam by early Monday and may actually weaken to a tropical storm before landfall," he said.
