Typhoon and Other Severe Weather in Hong Kong
Date & Time: 2014/11/01 (Saturday) 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F.)
Description: In September last year, Severe Typhoon Usagi posed severe threat to Hong Kong, though it subsequently missed the territory by a narrow margin. The Black rainstorm in the end of March this year caused flooding in a large shopping mall, and brought hail reports in many places. These events remind us that our territory is in every moment facing potential threat from various types of weather disasters. In this talk, we will review some of the historical typhoons and other severe weather events occurred in Hong Kong. The physical mechanisms behind typhoons and severe weather, as well as some monitoring tools and forecasting methods used by meteorologists will be introduced. It is hoped that through this talk, the public’s knowledge in this area can be enriched, and their awareness on disaster prevention can also be raised.
