Weather forecasters are predicting that a massive typhoon will hit the North West pacific sometime this weekend. They estimate that winds could rise to as high as one hundred and ten miles per hour and as a result cause a great deal of damage and disruption. It is expected that as a result of this there may be disruption to flights in Hong Kong and some parts of the south east of China.
In anticipation of the impending weather system, Cathy Pacific has already announced that customers may experience some level of delays. If the winds become too strong incoming flights will be diverted but as things stand at present that their services continue to run as normal.
It is predicted that the storms could be some of the worst to effect this part of the north west Pacific for over twenty years, but current indicators are showing that the worst effects of the typhoon should miss Honk Kong.
The typhoon has already caused severe disruption in Taiwan due to the flash floods caused by the heavy rain. Many flights have already been cancelled in southern China as the storm heads that way.
Airlines are advising passengers to keep themselves informed by checking online to see the current status of their flights with the most disruption thought to occur on Saturday and Sunday. It is anticipated that only a few long haul flights may be affected and that that by Monday things should be back to normal.
