Typhoon Koinu Causes Widespread Flooding in Hong Kong

Typhoon Koinu brought torrential rains to Hong Kong, resulting in widespread flooding and prompting authorities to issue a “black” rain warning — the highest level in the city. This marks the second time in a month that such an alert has been issued. Rainfall exceeded 300 millimeters in some areas, causing disruptions to daily life.

While no major damage has been reported, the storm led to school closures and halted operations at the city’s stock exchange. Additionally, hundreds of travelers were stranded at Hong Kong’s international airport.

Koinu is now moving towards Guangdong province in China, where emergency warnings have been issued, affecting thousands of fishing boats and coastal areas.
