Pakhar moves closer, HKO issues T1
THE Observatory issued Signal no. 1 as Tropical Cyclone Pakhar moves faster toward the coast of Guandong, its latest bulletin said.
Hongkongers have been urged to complete clearing and recovery works following the destruction of Severe Typhoon Hato earlier this week.
Pakhar is estimated to be within 800 kilometers of the city.
“Local winds are expected to strengthen gradually tonight and tomorrow. The Observatory will consider issuing the Strong Wind Signal No. 3 around this evening,” the Observatory added.
It also estimated that Pakhar will be closest to Hong Kong, causing squally showers.
