Hong Kong meteorological authorities issued an "amber" rainstorm warning at 15:00 (local time) on Wednesday, June 13. The warning indicates that more than 3 cm (1 in) of rain per hour is anticipated. Thunderstorms are also expected. Localized flooding is possible, particularly in low-lying areas. Associated transportation disruptions are possible throughout the day.
