  • Description

    THE LATEST OFFICIAL DEATH ROLL FROM TYPHOON RUBY WHICH LASHED HONG KONG WITH 130-MILES-AN-HOUR (200-KPH) WINDS ON SATURDAY, IS 30 DEAD. THERE ARE 300 INJURED, AND 11 PEOPLE STILL MISSING. ABOUT 8,500 ARE HOMELESS AND 6,000 HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SOCIAL WELFARE DEPARTMENT FOR EMERGENCY RELIEF.

    NOW THE BIG CLEAN-UP AND RELIEF OPERATION IS ON, AS LIFE IN THE BRITISH COLONY STARTS TO GET BACK TO SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL. THE GREAT WINDS DESTROYED HUNDREDS OF FLIMSY BUILDINGS, AND THEY ALSO BROUGHT DOWN MANY SCAFFOLDING FRAMEWORKS SURROUNDING MUCH OF THE NEW CONSTRUCTION WORK. APART FROM SCAFFOLDING STREETS WERE BLOCKED WITH RUBBLE, UP-ROOTED TREES AND BROKEN GLASS.

    (LOW-LYING PARTS OF THE COLONY, INCLUDING THE NEW TERRITORIES HAVE ALSO BEEN HIT BY FLOODING BROUGHT ON BY TORRENTIAL RAINS WHICH ACCOMPANIED THE TERRIFIC WIND LASHING.)
