Tropical cyclone warnings of Signal No. 8 or above issued by the Observatory during the

passage of Shirley in August 1968

Local Storm Warning issued at 6:00 a.m. on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.7 was hoisted at 6 a.m., which means that gale or storm force

winds with mean speed 34 knots or more are expected from the northeast quarter.

Winds over the Colony are northerly, have freshened since midnight and are already strong in

exposed places offshore. Gusts of 37 knots have been recorded at Cheung Chau.

At 6 a.m., Severe Tropical Storm Shirley was centred near 20.5 degrees north, 115.8 degrees east, that is about 140 miles southeast of Hong Kong and was moving west-northwest at 9 knots.

There is no information concerning wind strength near the centre of the storm but winds of 60 knots were reported at Pratas Island when the centre was about 60 miles from that station.

Shirley has slowed down slightly but it continues to move closer to Hong Kong. If this movement persists, the centre of Shirley will pass about 70 miles south-southwest of the Colony this evening. In Hong Kong winds are expected to increase and present indications are that gales are likely to reach Hong Kong this afternoon. The eye of Shirley is now 80 miles in diameter.

As this area moves over Colony, some places will experience an improvement as the rainfall lessens. However precautions should, on no account, be relaxed as violent winds and heavy rain will return after the eye has passed.

The eye of Typhoon Shirley is centred just south of Stanley Peninsula and is large. The relatively rain-free area is circular and about 50 miles across. Rain falling over the southern part of the Colony is now only moderately heavy. However on no account should precautions be relaxed, as violent winds and heavy rain will return after the eye has passed. When this happens, places that have been sheltered may become dangerously exposed to southwesterly winds.

4.85 inches of rain have been recorded since 7 p.m. yesterday and a further four to six inches are expected during the next twelve hours.
