Typhoon Nesat makes landfall in Hong Kong Thursday with 220 mile per hour winds. Two people were injured when bamboo scaffolding was blown over and collapsed onto a taxi. Another man was injured by a falling tree. A barge also ripped free from its moorings and slammed into a seawall on Hong Kong island, forcing nearby apartments to be evacuated.

Hong Kong's stock market suspended trading and shops and businesses were shuttered as Nesat crossed the South China Sea from the Philippines. Nesat is responsible for 35 deaths in the Philippines. Another 45 people are still listed as missing there.
