The Day After Typhoon Vicente

A strong typhoon hit Hong Kong last night, bringing winds of more than 140 km/h and heavy rain. A storm warning of 10 (highest level) was raised for Typhoon Vicente. This is the first time in 13 years that a warning of this level was raised in Hong Kong.

The Southorn Playground is closed for the morning as fallen branches litter the courts.

High winds from typhoon Vicente caused damage to many parts of Hong Kong

What a mess

It is clear that this umbrella failed someone in last night’s storm.

Last night, many businesses closed early as typhoon Vicente neared. They began re-opening late the next morning.
