Typhoon Mangkhut in Hong Kong

2018-09-17 10:53
Heavy rain and winds lashed Hong Kong as Typhoon Mangkhut continued on its trajectory through Asia. Mangkhut, reported to be the biggest storm in the world of 2018 so far, was forecast to hit Hong Kong and southern China on Sunday afternoon, after wreaking havoc in the Philippines. The Hong Kong Observatory issued a number ten tropical storm warning on Sunday morning. This video shows strong winds and heavy rain whipped up by the storm in a residential complex. The uploader gave the location as Tsing Yi, an island to the west of the city. “Maybe not the right time to go for a walk,” the uploader wrote, from indoors. In the Philippines, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said an estimated 5.2 million people were within 77 miles of the projected path of Mangkhut.
