Reply To: Tropical Cyclone Hagupit and Hong Kong

#8201

Hagupit has moved on track somewhat south of the forecast above; even so, set to impact Hong Kong, perhaps a strong impact if at all close to us.

Now, past Luzon, and will be closest to us sometime this evening/overnight, probably over 100km away. With max sustained winds of around 100 knots (190km/hr), it would rank as Category 3 on hurricane scale, so powerful – even well over 100km away, will be strong winds, heavy rain.

Currently Number One signal in effect; could be Number Three soon [in a couple of hours], and Eight may be issued this afternoon.
