Hong Kong battens down the hatches for crappiest typhoon known to man

In case you missed it, that was a T8 last night. Wow, intense wasn’t it? 

And in case you think you slept through the chaos, you didn’t. It was just a really rubbish storm.

The Hong Kong Weather Observatory cancelled all typhoon warnings at 5:50 am this morning. 

The only difference between this morning and late yesterday afternoon when the signal was issued? It’s actually raining a little bit now.

We’re convinced this was just a ploy to shut down the stock market in a bid to quell the mass sell off.

Oh well. Back to the real world we guess. Sorry kids.
