While the storm has weakened just a little bit, it's still a very strong cyclone churning in the South China Sea and is expected to brush parts of Vietnam in the next couple of days. Vietnamese officials have evacuated nearly 500,000 people from "high risk" areas to buildings that are more able to withstand the destructive winds.
I expect more bad news & pictures coming from overseas in the coming days, unfortunately. For more on the storm and to see some of the damaged areas, click this CBS story.
