HONG KONG HIT BY TYPHOON
The Chinese province of Hong Kong was hit by a typhoon, dubbed Nida, on Tuesday morning. Officials report that no major damage has been done. The Hong Kong Observatory reported dangers of flooding and winds up to 145 km/hour (90 miles/hour), resulting in the cancellation of nearly 200 flights. Nida eventually subsided to an extent, turning into a tropical storm and began to move into the city. Despite this good news, Hong Kong government officials urge citizens to stay cautious. They warn of higher winds on the horizon and the possibility of even more damage.
