This time we will analyze the typhoon-related posts and messages on the forums of last year's Nangka Typhoon (October 11-17, 2020) and this year's Lion Rock and Compass Typhoon (October 7-13, 2021). Nangka Typhoon involves 270 main posts and 17,000 replies, while Lion Rock and Compasses Typhoon involves 991 main posts and 34,000 replies.
Comparing the two typhoons, this time, netizens have a high degree of discussion. It is obvious that negative reactions have increased. The popularity value is about 20% higher than last year. It is believed that it is related to the dispute over the timing of the No. 8 typhoon signal issued by the Observatory during the Lion Rock typhoon last week.
According to information, the Nangka Typhoon hit Hong Kong from October 11 to 15 last year. The Observatory also issued the "No. 8 Northeast Gale or Storm Signal" on October 13, from 5:40 in the morning to 7:40 in the evening. It lasted 14 hours.
The Nangka typhoon passed about 440 kilometers south of Hong Kong. It was the "Farthest Typhoon No. 8" in Hong Kong at that time. However, the record was broken by the tropical cyclone Lion Rock last week, which exceeded 560 kilometers.
During the period when the No. 8 signal was in force last year, some citizens felt that the wind in the city was not strong, and questioned that the Observatory had sent the signal incorrectly.
As for the Lion Rock Typhoon signal last week, heavy rains occurred in many areas, the timing of the No. 8 typhoon signal issued by the Observatory, and the practice of delaying the "falling wave" several times thereafter also caused controversy among the public.
During the two typhoon signals, the observatory director Zheng Chuming's popularity in the discussion area was the highest, but this year's positive heat value was lower than last year.
After reviewing the format of criticism and complaints last week, the Observatory stated at about 9 a.m. yesterday that Typhoon Signal No. 8 will be maintained by 4 p.m. that day. Many netizens left messages on the Observatory’s Facebook, praising "Clear words" and "Doing this time." Go well, go to praise", "Finally this time I'm wild" and so on.
