Potentially flooding rainfall and damaging winds could hammer Hong Kong as Doksuri makes landfall this weekend.
Tropical Depression Doksuri is currently in the South China Sea and is north-northeast of the Philippines.
This storm will continue to track west-northwest over the next few days. Some strengthening is expected as it goes over warm waters.
Landfall is expected anywhere between the island of Hainan and the highly populated city-state of Hong Kong sometime this weekend.
Typhoon-force winds with higher gusts may impact the city-state of Hong Kong. A more widespread problem will be heavy rain that will likely cause flooding. There may be major disruptions to travel on top of potential damage.
The tropics are not finished in this part of the world after this system. Another named tropical storm or typhoon may move through the Philippines early next week.
