More than 130 people were injured and nearly 1,000 fled to temporary shelters, according to Radio Television Hong Kong, as gusts of more than 170 kilometers per hour battered Hong Kong, with the epicenter passing around 100 kilometer south of the city.

Hong Kong and nearby Macau issued a rare No. 10 warning signal – the highest level possible – for the typhoon on Sunday. The cities are almost entirely shut down and one of Macau’s main attractions, local casinos, were ordered to close for the first time in history, CGTN reports. The disaster has already left five people injured in Macao, according to local media.
