Typhoon Nida: 'Strongest typhoon since 1983' hits Hong Kong
Hong Kong has come to a standstill as a powerful typhoon batters the territory, closing schools and businesses and shutting down transport. Typhoon Nida is now moving to mainland China, with the city of Guangzhou issuing its first-ever red storm alert, the highest-level warning. People in Guangdong province have been told to stockpile food and essentials. Typhoon Nida, which passed over the Philippines, is set to be the strongest typhoon in the region since 1983.
