Passengers traveling from Hong Kong to Shanghai encountered a number of flight delays and cancellations this past week thanks to bad weather. There were more than 40 flights delayed and seven flights cancelled, which in turn affected many travellers. And it wasn't just passengers travelling to Shanghai who were affected, other destinations from Hong Kong also saw delays. For anyone who was using Hong Kong as a transition point to their trip unfortunately these delays and cancellations ended up affecting their plans quite a bit, resulting in some passengers missing their connecting flights all together.
It seems as though the area of Hong Kong was hit by rainstorm after rainstorm on May 16 and a thunderstorm warning was issued as late as 10:30 that night.
