 Can the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge resist the 17 typhoon mangosteen? Hongkong officials responded


The Assistant Director of the Hong Kong Observatory, Chu Ming Cheng, said that the highest-level typhoon mangosteen will be closest to Hong Kong on the 16th, and the chances of issuing strong wind signal No. 8 are quite high. The weather will be significantly worse, bringing heavy winds and rains, the sea will have huge waves, low-lying coastal areas have the risk of flooding and seawater recharge.

Zheng Chuming reminded the public to be vigilant, take good precautions against wind, stay away from the sea, stop all water activities, and pay attention to the latest weather forecast.

Hong Kong Security Secretary Li Jiachao attended the press conference and said that the SAR government is confident of dealing with the threat posed by the typhoon and has urged all government departments to be in place as soon as possible to enhance the overall emergency response efficiency.

As for the prevention of flooding in low-lying areas, Assistant Director of Drainage Services of Hong Kong, Jane Yanhui, said that people had been sent to six low-lying areas, such as Kali in Tuen Mun and South Wai in Sai Kung, to take measures to prevent seawater recharge, such as installing baffles and stacking sandbags, and to set up a liaison mechanism to notify residents when the water level exceeded the warning line.

The Hong Kong Civil Affairs Department has also made arrangements for the evacuation plan. Wang Xiuhui, deputy director of the Hong Kong Civil Affairs Department, revealed that emergency coordination centres will be launched and 48 temporary shelters will be opened in Hong Kong after a strong wind signal No. 3 is issued. She also revealed that two 24-hour tour buses will be arranged on the 15th to take Tai O residents to temporary shelter nearby.

Asked if the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge could withstand the wind as high as 17 mangosteen, Xu Yonghua, deputy director of the Hong Kong Highway Administration, believed that the bridge had sufficient wind resistance, saying that it was designed to a fairly high standard and passed wind tunnel tests with a high safety factor. However, he also said that a team would be deployed during the typhoon to monitor the facilities and be ready to help deal with the accident immediately. In addition, senior science director of the Hong Kong Observatory, Chen Yinghua, told China News Agency on the 14th that according to the current forecast path, super typhoon mangosteen will cross northern Luzon and enter the South China Sea on the 15th. Although it has weakened, it still has the opportunity to maintain super typhoon level, with the central wind force approaching 200 kilometers per hour. Despite the variability in the path and distance from Hong Kong, mangosteen circulation is expected to pose a threat to the coast of Guangdong. Source: China News Net editor: Qian Yue Xiao _NBJ10675
