Linh has successfully surpassed nine outstanding entries to receive the honourable award.
According to EMS news, the entry was a good mixture of forecast details and practical information for viewers as Super Typhoon Haiyan approached Vietnam.
Producer/editor Tran Thao Linh, who is a meteorologist with a master's degree, did an excellent job of putting the enormity of the typhoon in context by showing a video of the storm in the Philippines, and comparing it in size and strength to other well-known storms.
The parameters of the storm and its forecast track were delivered in a calm but authoritative tone. The presentation included examples of what residents could do to prepare for the impending storm's landfall.
