In other news, a blue warning for typhoons has been issued in Shenzhen after Storm Nesat was upgraded to typhoon status.

Typhoon Nesat is expected to bring strong wind and rain to Shenzhen on Monday, October 17 and Tuesday, October 18.

Temperatures will drop to 17 degrees Celsius in some parts of the city.

Those of us from naturally cold countries or parts of the world where it frequently rains will be wondering what all the fuss is about, the rest of you should probably drink more hot water.
