when will it stop?

yes, the rain, that is.
The Hong Kong Observatory sure has some strange standards for their weather warnings.
A few months ago, it was T3, but the whole city felt like it's been put inside a wind tunnel complete with a hose down. The Observatory did not budge and kept with the T3 warning. There was much uproar of course on the next day.
What about today? it's been pouring down for the past few hours and does not look like it's going to stop anytime soon. so at bloody 8:00 am it decides to put up a yellow rainstorm warning! what use is that going to be?

yaaaa ~ couldn't agree more!! The situation was much much worse for those (like me) who were stuck on the 80th floor of a seaside building that day bc a T3 instead of T8 was raised. SOO ridiculous!
