The Hong Kong Observatory  has a signals system to help keep people safe during severe weather. You can check to see if a typhoon or rain signal has been hoisted at www.hko.gov.hk

When does Crossroads stay open?

Crossroads remains open during a T1 or T3 typhoon  and during Amber and Red rain warnings.

When does Crossroads close due to weather?

If the observatory predicts that a typhoon is likely to reach T8, Crossroads will close to the public and send volunteers and visitors home.  This is because public transportation throughout the city will stop running when these warnings are raised. A 3 hour pre-T8 warning is usually issued before the T8 comes into effect.

When a T8 or Black rain signal is hoisted, Crossroads is closed for all volunteers, clients, visitors and simulation participants.

Hong Kong weather updates are available via the Hong Kong Observatory’s automated telephone service (2835 1473) or via www.hko.gov.hk.

The safety of all our volunteers and visitors is important to us! If you should have further questions, please email enquiries@crossroads.org.hk or call our main number at +852 2984 9309
