Reply To: (Super) Typhoon Chanchu – coming our way

#7896

Shot here from s coast Cheung Chau this morning. V little wind, but fair waves rolling in. Here, though, have offshore islands – so waves generally not extreme. Just heard that Sai Kung Peninsula, eastern Hong Kong, has big swell rolling in; a coastal restaurant – Sha Kiu – with water rolling over main area for tables, two floating wooden piers have "gone". Chanchu regained some strength according to JTWC; just seen forum post mentioning 200km outer eye. Looks set to pass a little to the east of HK; so powerful northerlies may dominate tomorrow. Weather radar (HK Obs) shows rainstorms nearing. [img]http://www.hkoutdoors.com/components/com_joomlaboard/uploaded/images/chanchuearlysurf.JPG[/img]
