HONG KONG : 23 Sept., 2008 - The Hong Kong Observatory has issued the Number 8 storm signal as Typhoon Hagupit (颱風 黑格比) bears down on Hong Kong. This means that winds with mean speeds of 63 kilometres per hour or more are expected from the northeast quarter. At 7 P.M., Typhoon Hagupit was centred about 200 kilometres south of Hong Kong (near 20.5 degrees north 114.5 degrees east) and is forecast to move west or west-northwest at about 28 kilometres per hour heading towards the western coast of Guangdong. Hagupit's outer rainbands are already affecting Hong Kong. Gale force winds are generally blowing over offshore waters and on high ground. Owing to the combined effect of Hagupit and high tide, flooding is expected overnight in low lying areas including Sheung Wan. According to Hagupit's present track, it is expected that the no.8 gale or storm signal will remain in force overnight.

Place : Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Equipment: Canon 40D, 24-105mm 4.0L
