A few times a yer Hong Kong receives a Typhoon, which is categorized by the Hong Kong Observatory into one of several categories… but what does each of those categories really mean? KOO the penguin wants to illustrate how the Typhoon system really works @ Hong Kong:

First we have the T1… which is like a ghost Typhoon, because you know its somewhere but there is no way you can see it. What you do see is completely the opposite of what you would expect from a Typhoon warning: nice clear sky, complete lack of wind and crazy high stuffiness (yeah, even higher than normal!).

Then we have the T3 and now you see what they were talking about! The winds starts to make noises through your washroom’s fan, the windows cannot stay open for long and doors are suddenly shut by each gust of wind. Also here comes the rain and guess what? In Hong Kong it rains horizontally! So don’t bother using an umbrella cause a) the wind is going to break it and b) the rain will find its way to you anyway. T3 are also a time for hope (hoping a T8 will be declared during working hours) and a time of fear (fearing the traffic jams to go back home).

A T8 (and upwards) is a Typhoon hit on the city, and it means, no work la! So if the planets align and a T8 is declared on a Monday morning… you get to stay at home! That is why in Hong Kong we have the highest population with an installed weather related app on their phones, so we can now immediately when to go back home! :-)
