The Civil Protection Operations Centre recorded nine minor incidents during the hoisting of Signal No. 8.
Public bus transport was to be resumed gradually. The city’s four emergency shelters for those who sought shelter from the typhoon were closed at 5:30 pm. A total of 16 flights were delayed by the typhoon, Macao’s Civil Aviation Authority (AACM) announced.
