“When Chaba no longer poses a threat to Hong Kong, the Observatory will cancel all tropical cyclone warning signals,” the bulletin reads.
At 4 pm, Tropical Storm Chaba was estimated to be about 440 kilometers west-northwest of Hong Kong and was forecast to move north or north-northeast at about 14 kilometers per hour across inland Guangxi and weaken gradually.
The HKO urged members of the public to stay away from the shoreline and not to engage in water sports.
