A typhoon is expected to hit Hong Kong early Tuesday. Hong Kong’s weather service has issued a level 8 signal and an orange alert, the second most severe alert, for incoming Typhoon Nida. Flooding is expected as the storm is likely to arrive during high tide. Due to these factors, there is a strong possibility that ports may be closed.

CNN reported this morning that “over 120 flights to and from Hong Kong have been cancelled as Typhoon Nida barrels towards the city.” Schools have been cancelled as well.

Due to the severe weather conditions, Mohawk clients may encounter delays for freight coming in or going out of Hong Kong and southern China, for the next several days.
