Typhoon Mangkhut – Trains Cancelled

If things go as normal, the fierce tropical storm/typhoon which has so far killed dozens in the Philippines and has now made landfall in Hong Kong and Guangdong, will slow down as it crosses southern China. However, while we usually escape the devastation seen on the coast, it can get a bit rough here, too. Expect strong winds and heavy rain. It has been windy all day. My hat blew off twice! But it will probably get worse tomorrow, Monday.

Also, all high-speed trains to and from Guangzhou, Shenzhen etc have been cancelled for the interim. I haven’t seen any info, but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t the same with flights.

In Guangdong, 6 people have been reported dead and 2.4 million people have already evacuated.

Be safe!
