WEATHER-HONGKONG-CHINA-PHILIPPINES-STORM


This image, captured by NASA's Aqua satellite on August 14, 2013, shows Typhoon Utor over China. Typhoon Utor left at least six people dead when it swept across the Philippines on Monday, flattening houses and causing flash floods and landslides. As it headed for mainland China, it barrelled past Hong Kong, where it forced the closure of financial markets, schools and businesses, and disrupted hundreds of flights. Gusts of more than 100 kilometres per hour were recorded, with rain lashing down, as the Hong Kong Observatory hoisted a "Number 8" storm warning in the early hours of Wednesday -- the third-highest level. As the typhoon skirted the city about 240 kilometres to the southwest, the observatory downgraded the warning in the afternoon to "Number 3", indicating strong winds.
