Two people were injured in Sai Kung falling from fallen trees in separate incidents today, a legacy of super-typhoon Mangkhut. And another falling tree causes traffic chaos.
First, in Hong Kin Road, a member of the Chinese Full Gospel Church was helping fellow members clear fallen trees near their church when one of the men who had climbed a ladder to cut off some branches was injured. He was taken to hospital.
Earlier in the afternoon a 50-year-old man also fell off a tree he was cutting in Tin Mui Hoi. He was also taken to hospital.
The third incident happened in Tai Po Tsai at 3:00 pm when trees fell across Clear Water Bay Road. Traffic was congested for over an hour as the road was closed so firemen could clear them.
