I just KNEW the streets of Hong Kong were not safe!

Front page head line reads: Hawkers plunge into street cave-in. Apparently yesterday's terrifing thunder storms caused the side walk in an alley to collape. Four street vendors fell into a 4 metre-deep hole along with their booths.

It happened minutes before a red rainstorm warning - prompted by a deluge that dropped up to 70mm of rain in an hour - was lowered.

Things not normally seen or heard in US News:
1. Hawkers
2. side walk collape
3. metre
4. red rainstorm warning
5. mm

I'm not sure what I'm more shocked at, side walk collape or hawkers staying in their booths in this kind of insane weather???
