On the 2nd of September 1937 a typhoon struck Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland, which at the time was considered to be the largest in recorded history. Many fishing boats and junks were sunk along with their crewmembers and 28 ocean going ships were caught up in the storm, an estimated 11,000 people lost their lives on the sea, along with 5,000 more on land.

In the wake of one of the busiest Typhoon seasons ever, this serves as a reminder of how dangerous these giant storms are. Most of the destruction from the Great Hong Kong typhoon came in the form a huge tsunami that struck the city in the middle of the night. The storm was predicted to pass Hong Kong so people were not generally prepared for the catastrophe, when it changed course in the last minute and made a direct hit, lead by a 9 meters high wall of water that struct the city without a warning. The winds were blowing at up to 269 kilometers per hour, making the storm a category 5 typhoon. Back in the day the typhoons were not named so the history remembers the storm as the Great Hong Kong Typhoon.
