Hong Kong transport resumes after typhoon, Macau struggles to recover

Chow Yun-Fat spotted clearing uprooted tree from road after Typhoon Hato

According to the regional government, five people were killed and 153 injured in Macau, which in better weather is known as China's gambling enclave. However, most of these risks (especially the casino risks) are ceded to the worldwide reinsurance market.

The Macau government said two bodies were found in a flooded auto park early Thursday, and that two more died when they were trapped in the basement of their shop.

Details of the remaining deaths were not available.

Footage published Thursday on the website of Apple Daily showed water gushing into an underground vehicle park, with people wading through neck-deep water littered with debris as one man shouted in panic. Four of the 10 victims were killed by floods in underground vehicle parks. A source had said on Wednesday that the complex was running on back-up power.

Macau's leader Fernando Chui and other government ministers bowed their heads during a minute's silence at an evening press conference.

Terrifying video clips have emerged on social media showing the devastating destruction brought by Typhoon Hato in populous cities like Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Zhuhai on the Chinese coast. In the face of the disaster, we have to recognise that what has been done was not enough. "I apologise sincerely on behalf of the government".

Debris was scattered on roads and a shipping container was washed up on its side in front of a temple after Wednesday's storm.

Authorities have struggled to restore order in the city of 600,000, with some residents having to queue for water from fire hydrants. "The old neighbourhoods were seriously flooded and we hope all the garbage can be cleaned before more rain comes".

In residential districts such as Heng Fa Chuen on densely populated Hong Kong island, waves smashed against the sides of oceanfront buildings and surged over a promenade, sweeping away walls and benches and swamping vehicles parked nearby.

The former Portuguese colony's casinos, however, had backup power, two casino executives told Reuters.

Hato was downgraded to a tropical depression yesterday afternoon as it travelled further into China.

According to a senior scientific officer for the Hong Kong observatory, there are warnings that sea levels could rise several meters in some places, with the government issuing flood alerts and opening 27 shelters across the city.
