Chow Yun-Fat Caught on Camera Cleaning Up Hong Kong Streets After Typhoon Hato

Maximum winds near Hato's center were recorded at a destructive 155 kph (95 mph) as it continued to move west across Guangdong in the general direction of Hainan island.

Macau: The death toll from Severe Typhoon Hato rose to at least 16 Thursday after the storm left a trail of destruction across southern China, blacking out Macau's mega-casinos and battering Hong Kong's skyscrapers. However, most of these risks (especially the casino risks) are ceded to the worldwide reinsurance market.

On Saturday, an estimated 20 water trucks were dispatched to Macau and some 360,000 bottles of water were imported.

The government sent a request to Chinese authorities asking for the assistance of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Macau garrison to assist in relief efforts, the first such request since the city was handed over to China in 1999. Wynn Macau fell almost 2 percent, and Melco International dropped 1.6 percent. "We hope to do something concrete", she said.

The city's firefighters on Saturday were still carrying out recovery work at flooded underground vehicle parks, but had not found more bodies. It was not clear if it was the same auto park where the bodies had been found. "Residents are in peril and unable to assess if help is on the way", said Ashley Sutherland-Winch, a marketing consultant in Macau.

"We've been going without water and electricity for more than 24 hours".

The typhoon Pakhar, while still in its early stages, could strike the beleaguered region encompassing Macau and Hong Kong late Monday or early Tuesday, according to reports, bringing torrential rain and high winds, similar to those brought just last week by Hato, in which an estimated 21 were killed in Macau alone, and many more were injured. "We strongly object to the detention of our journalists carrying out their duty to inform the public".

Hong Kong's port Authority suspended operations on August 23, 2017.

A low pressure area near the Philippines is likely to develop into a tropical cyclone and enter the 800-kilometre radius of Hong Kong as soon as this weekend, according to meteorological authorities.

Ma Io Kun, the commissioner of the Public Security Police in Macau, said the ban was issued in accordance with the law and had nothing to do with the visitors' occupations.
