Six volunteers visited residents in Tai O, Lantau who were affected by Typhoon Koppu last week and helped repair their damaged homes. As heavy rain and strong winds lashed Hong Kong on Monday night, a large part of Tai O was flooded. Water reached 1.5 metres deep in low-lying areas. Shortly after the No 8 typhoon signal was cancelled on Tuesday morning, six volunteers from Hong Kong Red Cross visited three elderly people who lived on their own. They helped clean up their flooded homes, replace furniture and repair damaged parts of their houses. The group also donated 300 pieces of clothing to residents in Tai O and northern New Territories. Typhoon Koppu caused flooding, uprooted trees, broke windows and blew down signboards across the territory. It brought 110mm of rain to the city in four hours and kicked up winds nearing 160km/h.
