Typhoon Signal No 1 has been issued

Standby Signal, No. 1 Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

Here is the latest Tropical Cyclone Bulletin issued by the Hong Kong Observatory. The Standby Signal, No. 1 was issued at 3:20 p.m. This means that a tropical cyclone now centred within about 800 kilometres of Hong Kong may affect us. At 3 p.m., Typhoon Krosa was estimated to be about 530 kilometres southeast of Hong Kong (near 19.2 degrees north 118.0 degrees east) and is forecast to move west or west-northwest at about 16 kilometres per hour crossing the northern part of the South China Sea.

 Under the combined effect of Krosa and the monsoon, winds are expected to strengthen locally tomorrow. As the rain band of Korsa is relatively compact, showers are not expected to affect south China coast until later tomorrow.
