« Flights were cancelled and schools were closed in Hong Kong on Friday as Typhoon Saola brought rain and strong winds to the region.
Footage show palm trees buckling as the winds whipped around the city’s skyscrapers. Flights at the airport were grounded, with travellers seen waiting with their luggage and looking at departure boards, and other businesses shut their doors.
The Hong Kong Meteorological Observatory raised the alert level for Super Typhoon Saola to its maximum level amid fears that it could be the strongest to hit the region in decades.
Local authorities advised residents not to go out, to keep away from doors and windows and to find a safe shelter.
On mainland China, Guangdong Province declared a Level I wind emergency, the maximum level. Wind speed was measured at 205 km/h when the typhoon was located about 230 km east-southeast of Hong Kong. »
