To be precise, the storms that do come near HK now tend to loose strength because of the lack of sufficient ocean warmth and dry air aloft.

To be clear...this picture is regarding the probability of coming within 120kms of Luzon, not Hong Kong...

amber warning in uk with trains cancelled and people told to avoid travel in the south. 1 dead so far. winds 130kmph
One dead? Didn't see that. A kid jumped into the sea at Newhaven and got swept away - but that was before the storm arrived and no doubt several other people died in the UK yesterday for non weather-related reasons.
I notice pictures in the Guardian of floods in St Albans too. At least they're honest enough to admit that happened last week.
yes you are correct on the kid, i was just going on the headlines. winds reached 159mph about 200kmph?

Sussex Police say 125 trees have fallen across Sussex - including one on a taxi in Eastbourne, from which the driver climbed out uninjured
The helter-skelter at Clacton Pier in Essex has blown down, but the structure has not fallen into the sea

Well you won't hear me "dismiss" this storm in the UK...
Krosa! Will we see a cloud from it?
HKO puts it at 400kms from us on Saturday evening as a typhoon...we might even get warnings...let's see.
