Hold on Tight: First T10 in Five Years as Typhoon Hato Hits Hong Kong

By Jenny Leung 23 August 2017
Yikes! We hope everyone is safely indoors today because Typhoon Hato is not playing about! At 9am this morning the Hong Kong Observatory issued out a No 10 signal as Typhoon Hato reaches Hong Kong, it's the first T10 to hit Hong Kong since back in July 2012. Luckily, Hato is expected to have passed through Hong Kong by tomorrow so for now, hold on tight guys!

Born in Hong Kong and raised in the UK, Jenny grew up with the best of both worlds. She loves just about anything to do with music and doesn’t shy away from belting out a tune or two when it comes to karaoke. If she’s not out and about exploring the city and practising her photography skills, she’s probably tucked up in bed with a book or glued to her laptop doing her online shopping.
