HONG KONG (AP) — Tropical Storm Ma-on has made landfall in southern China’s Guangdong province after bringing rain and stiff winds to Hong Kong, where the stock market was closed for the morning session. Residents of coastal areas around the city of Maoming were urged to stay away from the shore Thursday morning as the typhoon arrived. The Guangdong Meteorological Public Service Center said the Ma-on was packing sustained winds of 118 kilometers per hour. The Hong Kong government said that one person had been injured and reports of flooding had been received. The Hong Kong stock exchange said trading would resume in the afternoon.
