A powerful typhoon hits Hong Kong: there are victims




Authorities declared the eighth level of danger out of ten. Almost everywhere traffic is stopped.

A powerful typhoon struck Hong Kong — one person was killed, another 20 people were injured. This is reported by the South China Morning Post on Wednesday, October 13.

Authorities have declared an eighth storm warning in Hong Kong on a scale of 10. Schools have stopped classes and stock market trading has been canceled.

In turn, the Legislative Council postponed its weekly meeting until October 20. Traffic was stopped almost everywhere.

It is known that a 31-year-old man lost control of his motorcycle due to high winds and crashed into a lamppost. He was hospitalized but died in the hospital. At least 20 other people were injured to varying degrees of severity.


Recall that earlier in Shanghai, hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated because of the typhoon. Then the hurricane struck the eastern coast of China and an orange level of danger was declared in the region.
