GAC 01072014Typhoon Rammasun south of Hong Kong
July 17, 2014, Hong Kong, all ports

At 2pm local time today (17 July) Typhoon Rammasun was estimated to be about 630km south of Hong Kong (near 16.7 deg.N/ 115.1 deg.E) and forecast to intensify and move northwest at about 22 km per hour in the general direction of western Guangdong and Hainan Island.

Standby Signal No. 1 is in force. This means that a tropical cyclone now centred within about 800 km of Hong Kong may affect the area.

Rammasun showed signs of intensification in the past few hours. As Rammasun edges closer to the south China coast, local winds are expected to continue strengthening. There will be squally showers and swells.
