This is Chanchu. Scheduled to hit Hong Kong directly in about 72 hours. If it stays on course it should be a heck of a ride!

I have never been in one, but I have seen the aftermaths. They get a few a year here, so they prepare well. But everyone is saying this is going to be a big one!

Good luck. How far from the water are you?

Keep us posted - if you could SAFELY take some pics that would be cool. I've never been in a hurricane and I'm pretty sure I don't want that on my resume.

Going through the experience of a hurricane is one thing, doing it 70 floors up is nutz.:nuts:

Yeah, I am near the water, but can not see it, my apartment faces the pool. It is a 56 story building, and I am on the 1st floor! (Still about 40 feet up though) Looks like about 5:00 on Wednesday, I have seen two different projected paths, one shows an almost direct hit to Hong Kong, the other about 50 miles North. Either way they are saying it should be strong, 8-10 on the Typhoon scale, which is equivilent to a catagory 5 hurricane!

BTW, I went by that place to told me about in Wan Chai, but I should have called first, as they were closed on Sunday. :doh:

Alot of people live that far up here, you would not belive how many 50, 60, and 70 stoty apartments are around here. I have heard it is actually safer up there, as less chance of debris blowing out you windows.
