Hong Kong is likely to miss out on a full moon tonight, with the Observatory predicting wet, wild conditions and the prospect of the year's first No 3 typhoon signal to welcome in the Mid-Autumn Festival. Tropical Storm Vicente's centre was about 600km south-southwest of Hong Kong at 1am this morning and was expected to move northwest or west-northwest at about 30km an hour towards Hainan Island. The No 1 typhoon signal was hoisted at 2.40pm yesterday as the approach of Vicente brought squally thunderstorms and more than 20mm of rain to urban areas, the Observatory reported. It marked the first time since 1999 that a typhoon has affected the Mid-Autumn Festival. The Observatory expects Vicente to be closest to Hong Kong later this morning before gradually weakening. The uncertain weather yesterday saw only a few people venture to the temporary West Kowloon waterfront promenade on the first day of its opening. Some complained that the area lacked a festival atmosphere after the heavy rain forced the Leisure and Cultural Services Department to cancel art activities. Others said the promenade was too far away from downtown Tsim Sha Tsui. One visitor, Claudia Wong, said that while the government described the path along which it had erected 70 lanterns as beautiful, 'there is nothing here'. Ms Wong's husband, William, said it was not worth walking 45 minutes from their Yau Ma Tei home to the promenade, however, the couple said the location was good for viewing Victoria Harbour and fireworks. They suggested the government allow hawkers to set up booths to add atmosphere. At Disneyland, the weather was kind to visitors as skies cleared briefly to allow the nightly fireworks show to go ahead. On the walkway to the park, signs warned visitors not to burn candles, while security guards at the gate checked bags for candles and other banned items. Meanwhile, an 11-year-old girl suffered small burns to her face while trying to light a candle with a lighter at Tsz Lok Estate, Tsz Wan Shan. She was in stable condition in Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department began a three-night campaign to stop wax-burning at parks, public beaches and barbecue sites. Around 1,000 officers have been deployed to take enforcement against offenders.
