«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 ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

Due to the typhoon, sea level in Victoria Harbour has risen about three feet above the normal level. In Tolo Harbour the tidal surge is greater and has reached about six feet at Tai Po Kau.

The eye of Shirley is now affecting most parts of the Colony. Winds in Victoria Harbour are now only fresh and apart from the northwestern part of the New Territories. Rainfall is only moderately heavy. However it is very important that precautions should not be relaxed as violent winds and heavy rain will return after the eye has passed. Places that have been sheltered so far may become dangerously exposed to southwesterly winds.

4.98 inches of rain have been recorded since 7 p.m. yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at 8:30 p.m. on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.10 is still hoisted which means that hurricane force winds with mean speed 64 knots or more are expected from the southwest after the eye moves across the Colony.

At 8 p.m., the eye of Typhoon Shirley was centred over Hong Kong Island and was moving northwest at 10 knots.

The eye is now affecting most parts of the Colony. Winds at the Royal Observatory are calm and rain there is only light. However it is emphasized that precautions should not be relaxed as violent southwesterly winds and heavy rain are expected after the eye has passed.

5.05 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at 9:30 p.m. on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.10 is still hoisted.

Hurricane force winds with mean speed 64 knots or more are expected from the southwest after the eye moves across the Colony.

At 9 p.m., Typhoon Shirley was centred over the northwestern part of the New Territories near Deep Bay and was moving northwest at 10 knots.

The eye is still affecting most parts of Hong Kong but its southern edge has now cleared the southern part of the Colony. Waglan Island is now outside the eye and winds there are increasing rapidly from the south-southwest with gusts up to 56 knots recorded in the last hour. It is important that precautions should not be relaxed.

5.17 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at 10:30 p.m. on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.10 is still hoisted which means that hurricane force winds with mean speed 64 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

At 10 p.m., Typhoon Shirley was centred over Kwangtung province near 22.7 degrees north,

113.8 degrees east, that is about 30 miles northwest of Tate’s Cairn and was moving northwest at 12 knots.

The eye has now moved almost clear of the Colony and winds have strengthened from the south-southwest. Gusts of 85 knots have been recorded at Waglan Island and 66 knots at Cape Collinson. Radar Observations showed that rainfall will become much heavier and another six to eight inches are expected in the next twelve hours. Flooding and some landslides can be expected during the next few hours. The sea level in Victoria Harbour is about two feet above the normal predicted level and is expected to rise another two or three feet overnight.

5.30 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Royal Observatory since 7 p.m. yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at 11:30 p.m. on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.10 is still hoisted which means that hurricane force winds with mean speed 64 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

Gusts of 90 knots have been recorded at Cheung Chau and 83 knots at Tate’s Cairn during the last hour.

At 11 p.m., Typhoon Shirley was centred near 22.9 degrees north, 113.8 degrees east, that is about 37 miles north-northwest of Tate’s Cairn and was moving north-northwest at 8 knots.

The typhoon is expected to weaken as it moves inland and although winds over the Colony will become less violent in a few hours, gales will persist through most of the night. If the typhoon continues on its present track, it is likely that Local Storm Signal No. 10 will be replaced by No.6 in an hour or two.

6.00 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at midnight on 21 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.6 was hoisted at 11:45 p.m. which means that gale or storm force winds with mean speed 34 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

Winds over the Colony have decreased slightly and this trend is expected to continue.

Consequently, Local Storm Signal No.10 has been replaced by No.6. Winds near sea level are now of storm force and from the southwest.

At 11:30 p.m., Shirley was over land and had weakened into a severe tropical storm. It was centred near 23.0 degrees north, 113.8 degrees east, that is about 43 miles north-northwest of Tate’s Cairn and was moving north-northwest at 8 knots away from the Colony.

Heavy rain will continue and another five inches or so are expected in the next twelve hours.

Flooding and some landslides are probable.

6.64 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. yesterday.





Local Storm Warning issued at 00:30 a.m. on 22 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.6 is still hoisted which means that gale or storm force winds with mean speed 34 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

Winds over the Colony are still of gale to storm force. Gusts of 74 knots have been recorded at Cape Collinson and Waglan Island.

At midnight, Severe Tropical Storm Shirley was centred near 23.1 degrees north, 113.8 degrees east, that is about 46 miles north-northwest of Tate’s Cairn and was moving north-northwest at 8 knots away from the Colony.

Heavy rain will continue and another five inches or so are expected in the next twelve hours.

Flooding and some landslides are probable.

6.05 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since midnight yesterday.

Local Storm Warning issued at 1:30 a.m. on 22 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.6 is still hoisted which means that gale or storm force winds with mean speed 34 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

At 1 a.m., Severe Tropical Storm Shirley was centred near 23.1 degrees north, 113.7 degrees east, that is about 50 miles northwest of Tate’s Cairn and was moving north-northwest at 8 knots.

The storm has weakened slightly and winds over the Colony have continued to decrease.

However gusts of 76 knots have been recorded at the Airport and 69 knots at Cheung Chau.

7.09 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. on the 20th.

Local Storm Warning issued at 2:30 a.m. on 22 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

Local Storm Warning Signal No.6 is still hoisted, which means that gale or storm force winds with mean speed 34 knots or more are expected from the southwest quarter.

Winds over the Colony are now slowly moderating but gales are still being reported. Gusts of 58 knots have been recorded at Cheung Chau and 52 knots at the Royal Observatory during the last hour.

At 2 a.m., Severe Tropical Storm Shirley was centred near 23.3 degrees north, 113.5 degrees east, that is about 70 miles north-northwest of Hong Kong and was moving north-northwest at 15 knots. The Royal Observatory radar showed that the eye of Severe Tropical Storm Shirley was only 15 miles in diameter but the rain area associated with the storm was still extensive. If the storm continues on its present track, it is likely that Local Storm Signal No.6 will be replaced by No.3 in the next few hours.

7.49 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. on the 20th.

Local Storm Warning issued at 3:30 a.m. on 22 August 1968 by the Royal Observatory.

At 4 a.m., Shirley had weakened into a tropical storm and was centred near 23.7 degrees north,

113.2 degrees east, that is about 100 miles north-northwest of Hong Kong and was moving north-northwest at 15 knots.

The storm has weakened slightly and if it continues on its present track, it is likely that Local Storm Signal No. 6 will be replaced by No. 3 within the next two hours.

8.13 inches of rainfall have been recorded at the Observatory since 7 p.m. on the 20th.
