Typically, when a typhoon is approaching Japan I'm well aware of it, it's on the news and everyone talking about it. And if the storm lands in my neighborhood, I'm usually safe at home watching TV or working, well prepared ready to bunker down. This past weekend, I took a short trip to Hong Kong, landing in the city the day before typhoon Vicente made land fall just west of the city. And had to leave the day after.itinerary from wikitravel. Making reference to the itinerary, the above central port 5 around 11:30am (3 hours behind schedule).

I took a short three day trip to Hong Kong and within 24 hours of landing got direct hit by typhoon Vicente. I'm okay but the typhoon delayed my return flight to Nagoya by one day. I will update this blog soon, I'm still stuck in HK. Here are some AP (removed) and NASA photos of this mess.
