For the most up-to-date information regarding weather conditions, monitor local weather reports, local media and messages from local authorities, and weather websites such as the Hong Kong Observatory and the China Meteorological Administration. Please consider enrolling in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, if you haven’t already, to receive security and emergency messages from the nearest Consulate or Embassy. Domestic travel during this period will likely be affected by adverse weather conditions, causing delays and cancellations. Please contact rail stations and airline companies directly about their cancellations.  Please follow precautions advised by local authorities, and avoid dangerous areas affected by the storm (e.g. flooded areas, downed power lines). Hotels may have supplies on hand, but you might consider candles/flashlights and storing up extra food and drinking water. Please see the Red Cross (PDF 78 KB) website for more information on storm preparedness. For medical emergencies in all areas, please dial 120; for all other emergencies please dial 110.
