In the field with Simon Haslett, Professor of Physical Geography at the University of Wales. Hong Kong and Southeast China suffered the effects of Cyclone (Typhoon) Vicente on 23-24 July 2012. This video examines some of the physical impacts in the aftermath of Cyclone Vicente in Hong Kong on the 24 July. In Hong Kong typhoon signals, Numbers 1-10, are used to indicate the potential impact of a tropical cyclone (No. 10 being the highest) and are issued by the Hong Kong Observatory. At the time this video was made it was considered that this cyclone was the worst in 3 years; however, the news later reported that it was the most severe since 1999.
