Severe tropical Storm Cempaka was intensifying and moving more westward in the past few hours. Due to its circulation is small and the movement is slow, the chance of issuing typhoon signal No. 8 before the dawn on 20th is low, unless it intensifies significantly or accelerate its approach to Macao, However, since Cempaka will intensify further and will be the closest to Macau in daytime, the chances of issuing typhoon signal No. 8 from dawn to morning remains "Medium to relatively high". Our bureau will monitor the development of Cempaka closely.

Under the influence of Cempaka and heavy rain, flooding about 0.5m is expected over the low-lying area of Inner Harbour Area. Blue Storm Surge Warning is still in effect. The public in the low-lying area should be aware.
