Super Typhoon Saola Impacting Hong Kong & Southern China
Super Typhoon Saola is about to hit Southern China and is expected to disrupt logistics in the region.
Saola is currently nearing the Guangdong province with 125 mph winds, and officials say it could be among the five strongest typhoons to hit landfall since 1949.
Hong Kong, and parts of southern China, have come to a standstill as Saola moves closer, forcing closure of schools and businesses.
Numerous flights and vessels scheduled to depart or arrive between September 1st and 2nd throughout Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Macau, are facing disruption.
With the significant strengthening of winds, terminal and vessel operations in Hong Kong, Yantian, and Shekou have suspended operations.
Depending on weather conditions, and the typhoon’s trajectory, further delays and cancellations may be necessary in China.
Atlantic Pacific are monitoring the situation closely.
