The Macau Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG) said in a statement last night that it will possibly hoist the No. 8 typhoon signal between tonight and Tuesday morning.
According to the statement, the bureau expects the No. 3 signal to remain hoisted. The bureau forecast heavy showers and thunderstorms in the next few days, while the wind will strengthen at the end of today.
According to the SMG website, the still unnamed tropical cyclone was located about 210 km south-west of Macau at 11 p.m., moving towards the western coast of Guangdong province.
The bureau urged the public to take precautions as there will be flooding in the Inner Harbour area today and tomorrow from morning to noon due to high tide.
According to the bureau’s website, the blue storm surge warning remains in force. The blue storm surge warning is the bureau’s first level warning which means the water level is expected to be below 0.5 metres above street level.
