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




Typhoon Vicente snapped this tree in half spilling branches and debris onto Spring Garden Lane in Wan Chai


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.

Originally from Toronto, Canada I moved to Hong Kong late 2010. With this move I discovered a new world in more ways than one. I found a beautiful city filled with vibrancy and energy. And I uncovered an expressive side that I channel through photography. View all posts by Jeffrey T @ phizzat
