Typhoon

Hi my parents were in HK in the mid 50s and my sibling has a vague memory that they, or my mother particularly, may have received an award for helping out in her local area during a typhoon. It is an imperfect memory and we could not find anything among their effects, later, that corroborated the memory. Does anyone know where I might find any info about such things?
