An outsider writing on Nuri

I would like to recommend a blog article to you. You would see how an outsider views the work of the Hong Kong Observatory during the passage of Nuri over Hong Kong. Go to the link:

I don't know the author. I would like to thank him for explaining, in layman terms and based on objective facts, the tricky issues the Observatory faced in making the various decisions during the event. He also explains well the factors involved in considering the various alternative timing possibilities for the issuance of the number 8 signal.

It shows that not all Hong Kong people are stuck with the negative. I wish and believe that we Hong Kong people coming together could understand and handle problems with objectivity and rationality.
