Reply To: Tropical Cyclone Hagupit and Hong Kong


Even though the eye of Hagupit is maybe around 180km away, it is powerful enough to be causing a storm surge in Hong Kong.

At Quarry Bay, tide height now over 1m above forecast; while at Tai Po Kau (Tolo Harbour) tide around 2m above forecast; still rising at both localities, with high tides forecast for around 4am (now 11.35pm). Here at Cheung Chau, too, tide high due to the storm – now over 1m higher than around same time yesterday.
