In Hong Kong, it’s all about location, location, location.
On 24 September 2008, Typhoon Hagiput made landfall 200 km south of Hong Kong at the full moon high tide.
Many factors converge to create the perfect storm and a landfall to the south of HK brings storm surges towards our coastline while a hit to the north is blowing away from the shore.
I don’t have photos of Mui Wo and the 1 metre thick pile of polystyrene that looked like snow covering the entire bus depot area.
Beach expansion and building redecoration
Designs by Hagiput – 23 September 2008
It is worth noting that the bricks and stones on the floor were carried in on the waves, breaking windows near the ceiling at Cheung Sha Upper Beach and that the facility sits around 2 metres above sea level.
