Battered but still standing after Typhoon Mangkhut

HONG KONG (SE): Typhoon Mangkhut was the most powerful to hit Hong Kong since records began in 1946 and brought record levels of storm surge too, with flood waters reaching their highest since 1904. The Hong Kong Observatory hoisted the Number 10 typhoon signal—the highest— for 10 hours on Sunday, September 16.
 
Sunday Masses were cancelled in the parishes across the city. It may be sheer coincidence that a number of Signal 8 typhoons that hit Hong Kong in the recent past were on Sundays.
