We've been seeing some intensification in the eastern parts of Hong Kong Island, notably in Sai Wan Ho (Grand Waterfront) and Siu Sai Wan (Island Resort), but the scale is far lower than what's happening on the Kowloon side.

I used Google Translate. Translation is horrible but you can understand:

"Rejection two walls blown commercial buildings destroyed four houses-ton window frames Hengfei 40 meters "One Island East," beginning in March or Letter"

1. Under a signal 8 typhoon, One Island East took severe southeast winds

2. On floors 22 and 28 respectively, a total of two pieces of 3m x 1m tempered glass detached with their mounting frames

3. The glass dropped and flew sideways, striking the "Hua Lan Gardens" (don't know English name) 40m away. Four apartment units on floors 7-10 had their living room windows destroyed. The 10th floor unit's concrete bay window was shattered, sending aluminium window frame and glass falling to the street below. The street scene remains closed.
