Typhoons and tornadoes

Typhoon Kalmaegi (the Korean word for seagull) shut down Hong Kong, and Lisa and Karel who live right across the bay felt the impact. In fact, they apparently captured a rare event in a photo. From their high-rise apartment, they took the following pic seemingly showing a tornado floating down from the typhoon’s storm clouds.

This photo was taken from Lisa and Karel's 16th floor apartment in Shekou.  It shows a very unusual weather event.  A typhoon and a tornado.  Schools were closed. By the way, if it looks like there are trees on the building in the forefront of the photo that is because there are trees on top of that building.

This photo was taken from Lisa and Karel’s 16th floor apartment in Shekou. By the way, if it looks like there are trees and bushes on the building in the forefront of the photo that is because there is rooftop garden on that building. In the summer, it is pretty.

  1. Cornhead,

    I have watched tornadoes pass by Lexington. So, I know what you mean, I think. I suppose you could climb atop the grain elevator, squint hard, and you might imagine you are in a tall building in Shekou. Bad eye sight would help. But the smell from the packing plant would probably defeat your day dream. Oh, well.

    All the best.
