Hong Kong Hit By Typhoon Nesat's Gale-Force Winds, Rain

Typhoon Nesat Still

Central Hong Kong's streets were emptied as Typhoon Nesat swept gale-force winds and rain into the city.


Banks including HSBC Holdings Plc and Standard Chartered Plc closed branches, and Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Ltd. canceled equities and futures trading for the day. The storm felled trees and ripped bamboo scaffolding from buildings, while bus, tram and ferry services were suspended and at least 38 flights were delayed at the airport.
