The Hong Kong Observatory has further enhanced its regional weather information service by adding real-time weather photos at Sai Kung to its website starting from today (July 11). Weather photos captured by the two cameras installed at the Sai Kung Marine East Station help to monitor the weather conditions over Sai Kung Hoi, Port Shelter and their surrounding areas.
In recent years, a number of ecological tourist spots have been developed in Sai Kung such as the Hong Kong Global Geopark of China, attracting nature enthusiasts to the region for sightseeing. Many visitors and tourists also go to Sai Kung for leisure and vacation during weekends and public holidays. In addition, the coast of Sai Kung Hoi and Port Shelter is a hotspot for water sports activities where numerous training centres and yacht clubs are located. The newly launched weather photos will provide more weather information for the local residents of Sai Kung as well as people engaged in outdoor activities there.
