Hong Kong warning level increased to level 10, the highest possible level. Severe Tropical Cyclone Mangkhut (aka Typhoon Ompong) will score a direct hit with something like 43 million people in its potential track. This thing is a thousand kilometres wide and much, much stronger than the Cyclone Florence just being experienced in the US. It is STILL a Cat 5 despite travelling over the Philippines and shows no inclination to reduce its status yet. Fingers, toes and everything possible crossed for the people of Hong Kong and mainland China.
