Typhoon Haima takes direct aim at Hong Kong after killing at least eight people in the Philippines

Typhoon Haima takes direct aim at Hong Kong after killing at least eight people in the Philippines

October 21, 201611:27am  from news.com.au

SCHOOLS have been closed and flights cancelled as a massive storm takes direct aim at Hong Kong with winds of 145km/h and torrential rain.

The Hong Kong Observatory says that although Typhoon Haima has weakened slightly, it continues to move closer to Hong Kong, and still poses a substantial threat to the territory.

Local winds are strengthening gradually, and the outer rainbands of Haima have also begun to affect Hong Kong.

Flights are expected to be heavily impacted today as Haima moves closer to the coast, including flights to and from Australia.
