October 3, 2023 - Taifun Koinu iist bereit in Taiwan zu wüten, bevor er nach HongKong zieht, das sich immer noch erholen muss nachdem Super Taifun Saola im September gewütet hat.

Severe Typhoon Koinu is set to batter Taiwan on Thursday before approaching Hong Kong – still recovering from Super Typhon Saola, which struck the city last month.

According to forecasts from the U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Koinu will have a maximum windspeed of 195km/h, dropping to 140km/h as it makes landfall in southern Taiwan.

Taiwan, the Philippines and Hong Kong issued warnings on Tuesday, citing rough seas and potential floods and landslides.

The last time Hong Kong had to raise its maximum hurricane warning twice in the same year was in 1964 – almost 60 years ago.
