It’s taken me a while to get around to posting this, but last Friday I experienced my first almost-typhoon in Hong Kong. The typhoon warning signal was strong enough to get sent home from work early, and the boat trip back to Lamma was bumpy good fun. I was happy to hold onto my guts.
What we got in the end was, I thought, a little disappointing — a flying umbrella here, some broken branches there, and some heavy rain. But across the other side of the island the damage was apparently more severe. The barge below was washed up on to the beach by the power station, taking some serious real estate with it. I imagine it’s going to be a hell of a refloatation job — if they bother at all.
