Local authorities decided to abolish classes in schools on Monday, September 17, in connection with the continuing storm storm and work to eliminate the effects of the impact of the elements.
On September 16, nearly 900 flights were canceled at the Hong Kong International Airport. Now the airport is gradually returning to normal operation. The ferry service has not yet been resumed in full because of the large waves on the sea.
