The worst typhoon in five years has slammed into Hong Kong, hitting it with hurricane force winds and heavy rain.

The devastating storm caused more than 400 flights to be cancelled and most businesses have been closed.

Nearly 200 trees have been uprooted, blocking roads, and cars have been left under water and roads flooded.

Metre-high waves crashed onto the shores and construction cranes swayed on skyscrapers in Hong Kong.

Many people have been injured, and the same typhoon, Hato, has killed three people in the neighbouring region of Macau.

The storm has since moved on to the southern Chinese mainland.

  1. I don’t think I would like to be in Hong Kong right now because I shure wouldn’t be having fun

  2. I used to like in Hong Kong! I only moved to New Zealand a few months ago. I hope all of my friends are OK.
