Event

Hong Kong meteorological authorities issued a "typhoon signal" regarding Tropical Storm Ewiniar at midday on Thursday, June 7 (local time). The signal warns of strong winds of up to 62 km/h (38 mph), thunderstorms, heavy rain, and possible landslides; localized flooding has already been reported across Hong Kong and further flooding is likely, particularly in low-lying areas. Authorities have forbidden access to beaches due to rough surf and have warned drivers to be vigilant on motorways and flyovers due to strong winds. Significant transportation disruptions due to the adverse weather conditions are to be expected throughout the day.

All kindergartens and schools for handicapped children have been closed June 7 as a precaution.

Context

The tropical storm and typhoon season in the western Pacific Ocean runs from May to October.

Advice

Individuals present in Hong Kong are advised to confirm travel reservations, to keep abreast of weather forecasts, and to adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities. Remember that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult - and that floodwater may contain wastewater or chemical products.
