And I have just seen a black dog rolling by along the ground. Don't worry too much.... it picked itself up..... unlike the golf cart.


And for the Oscar-winning video..... Roll Eyes

At least one tree down near my flat; also heard sirens and saw (I think) a police vehicle.   I hope nobody is hurt.

It looks like a small boat got washed ashore in Nim Shue Wan as well, the jetty is more or less submerged, a number of dingy’s tied to the jetty are crashing into the rails.

Guess that is from the woods. A little bit lower in middle lane another golf cart is on its side and others have been thrown into each other.

Btw - the road to the Woods are blocked by falling trees/big branches - a lot of them!

I find it amazing and tragic that HKRI does not have a wood chipper and instead drives black bag after bag of organic material to the landfill
