The Hong Kong Observatory's history with weather radar started in 1959 when a Decca 41 weather radar was first installed at Tate's Cairn (大老山), at an altitude of about 580 m above mean sea level

Typhoon Wanda, struck at about 8am, Saturday, September 1, 1962, was one of the most destructive typhoons in the history of Hong Kong.
This is the image of Wanda, captured by Decca 41.
Responsible for 130 fatalities and 600 injured, Wanda was the second worst typhoon in Hong Kong. The catastrophic typhoon that strike Hong Kong on September 2, 1937 killed 11,000 pepole!
