10-21-2016 14:17 BJT

Typhoon Haima has brought transport and public services in Hong Kong to a standstill.

The city issued the No. 8 Northwest Gale or Storm Signal earlier today. This is the first time Hong Kong hoisted the signal since 1995.

Local observatories said winds over Hong Kong will turn to the southwest gradually this afternoon, and that the No. 8 signal is expected to remain in force for the remainder of the day.

Hong Kong Airport Authorities also said that nearly 700 passenger flights have been cancelled.
