By The SUN


The Hong Kong Observatory hoisted the No 8 typhoon signal at 10:40 tonight, as Tropical Storm Higos gets more intense as it moves closer to the city.

The Thunderstorm Warning has been issued, and will remain in force until 1am tomorrow.

In its latest weather bulletin, the Observatory said that strong to gale force winds can be expected overnight, but they will moderate later during the day. Seas will be very rough with swells.


Isolated squally thunderstorms are expected to occur over Hong Kong, as Higos moves  across the northern part of the South China Sea towards western Guangdong.

The Observatory raised Strong Wind Signal No 3 at 2:20pm earlier today, as it noted that Higos was picking up speed.


This meant that winds with mean speeds of 41 to 62 kilometres per hour could be expected. Objects that could be blown away must be securely fastened. People should stay away from the shoreline and not engage in water sports.
The Observatory says Higos will move to within 150 km of Hong Kong by tonight, and strong winds are expected until early tomorrow. It is expected to intensify gradually as it moves towards the coast of western Guangdong.
