Typhoon Chaba set for landfall west of Hong Kong

Radar imagery, from windytv

Chaba has recently intensified to typhoon strength. Has a large eye on radar images, with rainbands across wide area – inc passing over Hong Kong (though rain here not so intense just now).

HK Observatory info on Chaba

The track is not as much to northwest as had been forecast, so rather closer to Hong Kong than anticipated yesterday. Hence, T8 signal will be in effect for much of today.

Winds at Cheung Chau – consistently strong gale force, still increasing
Around 0.5m storm surge at Cheung Chau; tide rising – and would be a relatively high tide even with no surge.
Surge far higher in Macau.
