CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

August cloudier than usual

August was cloudier than usual, the Hong Kong Observatory said today.   The mean amount of cloud in the month was 77%, higher than the normal figure of 70%.   With localised heavy rain over some parts of the New Territories, the monthly rainfall was 350.5mm, about 23% below the normal figure.   The accumulated rainfall in the first eight months of the year was 1,521.1mm, about 21% less than the normal figure for the same period.   The monthly mean temperature of 28.8 degrees Celsius was close to the normal figure of 28.7 degrees.   Mainly attributing to the exceptionally hot weather in July, the mean temperature from June to August this year reached 29.1 degrees Celsius, the sixth highest on record for the same period.   Affected by the rainbands associated with tropical storm Lupit, there were occasional heavy showers and squally thunderstorms in the city from August 3 to 5.   With plenty of sunshine, the temperature soared to 34.4 degrees on August 25, the highest of the month.   During the thunderstorms on the morning of August 27, the temperature dropped to a minimum of 23.4 degrees, the lowest of the month.   Four tropical cyclones occurred over the South China Sea and the western North Pacific in August.
