Hong Kong raises Strong Wind Signal no. 3 as Typhoon Yutu edges closer
to eastern Guangdong
Full story:
https://www.hongkongfp.com/2018/11/01/hong-kong-raises-strong-wind-signal-no-3-typhoon-yutu-edges-closer-eastern-guangdong/

The Strong Wind Signal no. 3 was issued at 12:40 pm on Thursday as
severe tropical storm Yutu edged closer to the coastal waters of eastern
Guangdong.

The Hong Kong Observatory said that, as of 2 pm, Yutu was estimated to
be about 340 kilometres southeast of Hong Kong and was predicted to
cross the northeastern part of the South China Sea at about 12
kilometres per hour.

“With the combined effect of the northeast monsoon and Yutu, winds over
the coast of eastern Guangdong are expected to strengthen gradually this
afternoon and tonight,” the Observatory said.

The chance of issuing No. 8 Gale or Storm Signal was not high unless
Yutu took on a track closer to the Pearl River Delta, the Observatory added.

The Standby Signal no. 1 was issued earlier on Wednesday morning.

*There is still a possibility the storm could change course, however,
Observatory cautions

* The super typhoon moved on to the Philippines on Friday, having caused
more than 130 injuries in Guam, with winds of up to 290km/h at its centre



Hong Kong is likely to be spared a direct hit by Super Typhoon Yutu, as
the Observatory forecasts it will be over 800km away next Wednesday.

Yutu was moving away from Guam on Friday at noon and heading in the
general direction of Luzon, in the north of the Philippines at a speed
of 22km/h.

With winds blowing at 220km/h near its centre, Yutu was classified a
super typhoon – on a par with Typhoon Mangkhut, which left nearly 400
people injured in Hong Kong last month.
