So you guarantee no damage or fatalities for any future typhoons affecting Hong Kong? I'll hold you to your word.Originally Posted by TheBrit;2569689[B:
According to you, we should probably abandon the whole typhoon warning system and just treat it as another rainy day eh? I guess you must know more than the HKO about typhoons.
Guess you haven't heard of the news that a cargo ship sank off Hong Kong due to Typhoon Utor. Or that surfer that drown off Cheung Chau some years ago because he thought typhoons were nothing. Or the fact there hasn't been a direct strike by a powerful typhoon (York in 1999 was only Cat I) in many years. It is that, more than modern infrastructure, that keeps damage low.

I wonder what everyone stocked up on in order of absolute necessity??
I got bottled water, some fresh food and tinned plus batteries. Plus a couple of muffins.
So long as you stay indoors you should be fine. I'm a bit worried though about those increasing number of folks who ignore T8 warning signs to venture outside. And those workers who have to work outdoors (i.e. emergency service) regardless of the weather.
