Weather pr0n

Yesterday, tropical storm/depression Higos made landfall to the west of a little island in the South China Sea.

After which, Hong Kong Observatory lowered the Number One Standby Signal.

Today? It's been wet and blustery and as the hours progressed even more wet and blustery.

Currently, we have a Strong Monsoon Signal (winds in excess of 40km/hr), an Amber Rainstorm Warning (heavy rain exceeding 30 millimetres/hr), and a Thunderstorm Warning (heavy downpours, lightning and violent gusts of wind).

Cool, eh?
