Typhoon Nesat bears down on China

[UPDATE] Typhoon Nesat hit the South China coast Thursday after it swept past Hong Kong, closing financial markets, schools and businesses in one of Asia’s biggest financial centers. No deaths were reported in Hong Kong and damage was minimal.

Typhoon Nesat, packing winds of up to 100 mph, made landfall before dawn Tuesday in northeastern Luzon, the Philippines’ largest island, leaving a trail of flooding and devastation in its wake. The violent storm later lost strength and moved out to sea, heading toward southern China.

Framework presents images of destruction and despair with Times staff writer Alexandra Zavis documenting the devastation on our new international blog covering Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, World Now.
