1957 Typhoon Gloria | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

1957 Typhoon Gloria

Notes from HK Observatory:

Typhoon Gloria in September moved first to the west-northwest, and then turned northward to cross the coast close to the west of Macau. The Royal Observatory recorded twelve hours of strong winds, fourteen hours of gales, and one hour when winds were mainly hurricane strength with a gust of 101 knots. At Waglan, winds of gale force or higher lasted twenty-one hours with a peak gust of 100 knots. 

The HK Police Magazine, Winter1957 issue, has a report of rescuing the crew from M/V Tjibantjet which ran aground. The report starts on page 8 of the magazine, which can be read on page 255 of this PDF copy.
