Reply To: Typhoon Nida may make direct hit on Hong Kong


“Tidal waves from the typhoon overturned cars like so many toys”

News report on aftermath of Typhoon Wanda, which hit Hong Kong in 1962; last major typhoon to directly hit and bring a major storm surge – which can be more like tsunami than the tide gently coming in…

There’s chance of similar with Nida if it follows what seems the main forecast track – and strengthens considerably; but if it lands to east of HK and/or not so powerful could be little impact.

Worth noting, anyway, esp for anyone with place that could be hit by sea waves n flooding
