Hundreds of trees felled across Hong Kong by Typhoon Nida
- Written by arounddb, 2 August 2016
The first T8 storm of 2016, Typhoon Nida, blasted Hong Kong last night, causing widespread damage across the territory.
The typhoon, which skirted 40km northeast of the city, reportedly brought over 100 trees down and damaged countless others.
Here in Discovery Bay, the clean-up operation was underway today, after the Hong Kong Observatory issued the T3 signal shortly before 1pm. Sadly, the town lost a number of established trees and saw entire branches broken off others
The pictures here were taken just after the signal was lowered.
The storm, which has now weakened since making landfall in Guangdong Province at 4am, continued to affect Hong Kong on Tuesday morning, with Amber rainstorm, landslide and flood warnings all being issued. The Observatory will cancel all Tropical Cyclone Warning Signals shortly.
