  • Description

    TYPHOON "WANDA" DID GREAT DAMAGE TO HONG KONG NEW TERRITORIES, ESPECIALLY IN CHATIN, TAIPO AND SHATAUKOK.

    THE NEW SHATIN MARKET HAS COMPLETELY FLOODED AND A VILLAGE OF 300 HUTS WAS DESTROYED LEAVING NEARLY 3,000 PEOPLE HOMELESS. A HUGE TIDAL WAVE COVERED SHATIN FOR FOUR HOURS AND MADE IT LOOK LIKE A PART OF SEA.

    MORE THAN 2,000 FISHERMAN AND FARMERS IN TAIPO LOST THEIR HOMES. ONE WAS REPORTED DEAD AND TWO MISSING IN THE TYPHOON. 200 BOATS WERE SWEPT AWAY.

    BOTH CIVIL AND MILITARY AUTHORITIES HAVE MOVED IN TO HELP THE VICTIMS.
