Typhoon Watch

This morning the Typhoon signal 3 was hoisted. Super Typhoon Megi is about 420km away approaching Hong Kong, though moving only at 8km/h. That means it won't be making landfall until Saturday evening, spoiling our weekend.

After work this evening I saw some shops and hotels board up their windows, while people were rushing home. A few drops started to fall from the sky, but not enough to merit opening the umbrella.

Supermarkets like City Super and Park N Shop were busy and the latter didn't have enough vegetables and dairy products available. People were stocking up (like myself) on food to hunker down for the next few days.

Perhaps we will see the Typhoon signal 8 late Friday or Saturday morning.

We shall see.
