This photo was taken the morning after a major typhoon hit Hong Kong in August 1968. I was on mv Luxor in Taikoo Dock Yard and we were towed out into the harbour with no engines and shackled to a buoy to ride out the storm. The Panamian ship was next to us. The eye of the storm came right over HK and hit in the morning 12-4. It was quite eerie in the eye and during this period the C/O went forward to check the moorings on his way back the wind went from completely still to about force 8 in seconds and very nearly blew him off the flying bridge, I was on the bridge watching at the time. The tail end of the typhoon was really frightening particularly as we had no engines. The Panamian ship broke her moorings and drifted during the same watch. I can't remember her name. We were towed back to the dock yard 36 hours later. Quite an experience.
