Hong Kong Maintains Storm Signal as Usagi Reaches China

Hong Kong maintained its third-highest storm signal, with the city braced for floods and hundreds of flights canceled, after Usagi made landfall as a severe typhoon in southern China.

The Hong Kong Observatory repeated the No. 8 Storm Signal at 4 a.m. local time, meaning winds of at least 63 kilometers (39 miles) an hour are expected, while downgrading Usagi to a tropical cyclone as it moves gradually away from the city.
