hk typhoon nida

A work trip to HK, where we encountered a surprise typhoon warning upon landing. My first typhoon, and it really disrupted the meetings schedule.

Cool to see how organized the city was at dealing with their seasonal weather. Shops and businesses close down, schools close, public transport close, harbor closes, the stock exchange closes, the HK observatory updates everyone hourly, everyone seems to know how the weather will likely be in a few hours time. It didn’t seem to hit as bad. 400 trees down, 50-145km/h winds, minor flooding somewhere, alot of cancelled flights, a mess at the airport. Generally not as bad as it mainly hit from 2am to 10am, and you just sleep through most of it unless you’re out for some ungodly reason.
