Hong Kong faced more stormy weather on Sunday, August 26, as Tropical Storm Pakhar swept past the Chinese city just days after Typhoon Hato caused extensive damage. Hong Kong Observatory issued a Typhoon signal 8 earlier on Sunday morning warning that the storm which passed to the southwest of the city could bring winds of up to 74 mph, heavy rain and flooding. The storm made landfall near Taishan, in China’s Guangdong around noon after passing near Macau. The former Portuguese colony experienced severe damage during Typhoon Hato with 10 people dead, and power and water supplies disrupted to the gambling hub.
