The Hong Kong Observatory raised the typhoon No. 1 signal at 5:40 pm on Thursday, marking the presence of a tropical depression within 800 kilometers of the territory : the first typhoon signal raised this year.

Although the immediate impact on the city is expected to be mild, with the system currently over 250 kilometers away, squally showers and thunderstorms occurred on Friday and Saturday. Residents were advised to stay alert as the system moved closer to the western Guangdong coast and the Pearl River Estuary, potentially escalating the warning to T3, depending on the evolving conditions.

The public was advised to avoid the shoreline and refrain from engaging in water sports during this period. The Observatory recommended keeping a close eye on weather updates and making any necessary preparations to secure property and ensure safety.
