More Wind Information for Cheung Chau
(14 September 2009)


Wind information of a back-up weather station at Cheung Chau is now available on the Internet.


Wind information normally comes from the main hilltop station at Cheung Chau. However, this station was damaged by lightning during the severe thunderstorms last evening (13 September). Emergency repair was carried out this morning (14 September), restoring the wind speed information which has since been made available to the public through the tropical cyclone warning bulletins and on the Internet.


As wind direction information there has not been restored, wind information of the back-up station at Cheung Chau Beach is now provided to supplement that of the main Cheung Chau station. This information is available on the Observatory's internet webpage:
