Hong Kong: Typhoon

Typhoon Prapiroon has just left Hong Kong. Weatherblogger analyzes the figures and criticises the Hong Kong Obersevatory's signal 3 warning. The Typhoon was much stronger, however, “the Obersevatory had quoted the figure from the Kai-tak, where the wind speed was lower than other parts of Hong Kong (zh).

Another blogger, Ming, points out that “the Hong Kong Obersevatory is under the Economic development and Labour branch, it is easy for people to assoicate the decision with economic collusion in the weather broadcast (zh).

Bigwhiteguy's comments are more mild.
