The streets of Hong Kong, one of the world's most densely packed cities, are eerily quiet. Residents had been preparing for days for a super typhoon, the worst in decades.

But the storm weakened on its way to south China. Though there has been damage caused, it has been far less than originally anticipated.

About a dozen people here have sought treatment in hospital. There has been some flooding, and of course, hundreds of flights have been cancelled.

With the wind and rain abating, the city is likely to return to business as usual by mid-morning.
