A typhoon is approaching Hong Kong

A typhoon is heading towards Hong Kong, and so this will be my first typhoon on Park Island.
The building here seem very solid and well constucted, but still it will be interesting to see how windy it really gets here.
In each building lobby, the security guards put up signs warning about the typhoon. It was a level 1, now its a 3. Apparently it will hit a level 8 by tonight (or Signal 8 typhoon as the local people refer to it as).
I will be watching from my window. Much of Hong Kong closes when we have a typhoon, but I think all the facilities on park island will be kept open (expect perhaps for the outdoor pools - lucky we still have indoor pools we can use!)
