  • HKO lowers storm warning to Signal No 3
The Observatory lowered its storm warning to Strong Wind Signal No 3 at 4.20pm on Saturday, as Typhoon Chaba made its way away from Hong Kong.

The No 8 Southeast Gale or Storm Signal had been in force from Friday evening.

The No 3 signal means that winds of 62 kilometres per hour will still be felt at locations around Hong Kong. The Observatory urged the public not to relax precautionary measures and said it was not yet safe for small vessels to leave typhoon shelters.

Forecasters said typhoon Chaba had made landfall near Maoming city in Guangdong and was moving steadily away from Hong Kong.

The government said it had received at least 45 reports of fallen trees and one confirmed case of flooding from the typhoon.

Meanwhile, the Hospital Authority said three people had sought help for injuries sustained.
