Hong Kong: blowin' in the wind, again

When the Number One went up I know not. However, as of 5pm, tropical cyclone Bopha has crossed Taiwan and is currently 400km east of Hong Kong. Bopha is forecast to move west or west-southwest at about 18km/h.

We may go to a Number Three. Or, not.

Hong Kong Observatory

Tropical cyclone Bopha is not much to look at in the satellite image. What does catch the eye is another -- as yet no-name, but perfectly formed -- cyclone to the east of Bopha. Ah, it does have a name: Saomai. That one looks like it is going to go north of Taiwan before barreling across the Chinese mainland.
