    Bulletin issued at 18:45 HKT 14/Sep/2009

    At 7 p.m., Typhoon Koppu was centred about 180 kilometres south-southeast of Hong Kong (near 20.8 degrees north 114.7 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 16 kilometres per hour towards the coast of western Guangdong. Gale winds are blowing over offshore waters and high ground.

    (Precautionary Announcements with No. 8 Signal)
    • Complete all precautions in your home. Lock all windows and doors, fit bars into position and insert reinforced shutters and gates if they are available. Adhesive tape fixed to large window-panes in exposed positions will reduce damage by broken glass. Storm water drains should be cleared of leaves and rubbish.
    • Park your car where it is least likely to be damaged.
    • Do not stand near windows on the exposed side of your home. Move all furniture and valuables away from these areas. Make sure you have a safe place to shelter, should windows be broken.
    • Since seas are very rough and the current is strong with changing direction, you are advised to stay away from the shoreline and not to engage in water sports.
    • Owners of neon signs are reminded that they should now arrange for the electricity supply to their signs to be cut off.
    • Please listen to radio or watch TV for the latest weather information broadcast at the 15th, 30th, 45th and 58th minute of each hour. You can also browse the Hong Kong Observatory's web site for the information.
