A new episode is now available at the "Cool Met Stuff" channel on the Observatory webpage and "MyObservatory" mobile application (programme is broadcasted in Cantonese).

As 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the introduction of numbered typhoon signals in Hong Kong, the Observatory produces a special series of "Cool Met Stuff" public education videos on typhoons to promote public understanding of typhoon-related hazards and enhance disaster prevention awareness. In the first episode, Mr Shun Chi Ming, Director of the Observatory, talks about the evolution of tropical cyclone signals over the past 100 years.
