Foolproof flood control
     Hong Kong's subtropical climate makes it humid and typhoon-prone.
     When particularly heavy rainstorms hit the city, flooding may occur in low-lying areas in the New Territories, and some old urban areas.
     The Drainage Services Department has put in place a series of flood control measures.
     News.gov.hk interviewed the department's Chief Technical Officer and Engineer to see how they deal with emergency flooding situations and repair old drainage pipes in the city.
     The story appears on news.gov.hk today (March 12) in text and video format.
