Typhoon! No shipments out of HK

Hong Kong and other parts of China have been suffering through a really nasty typhoon (hurricane for us Americans) and shipments have been delayed some. As an example, I placed an order yesterday with Fancy Flashlights and have been informed it will ship the 27th or 28th HK time.

More importantly I hope the casualties are kept to a minimum!

At least they have lots of nice torches and batteries if the power goes out!

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

First time since 1999 that they declared hurricane status. Major storm! Wish them well and safe.

yes, the shipments have been delayed, but they have some alternative warehouses. I bought my cree Q5 led flashlight from TD which turned out to be in their AU warehouse a while back and it took only 3 days.

What an AU warehouse. Probably in someone’s garage.

Hey, edc and others, can you mangle the t!ny-de@l links when you quote spammers ike “ultey”?

If I understand the system, they pepper forums with links and that improves T-D’s ranking in search engines because they’ve been mentioned more often. We mark them as spammers so they disappear, but then quotes remain and have the same effect.

(I’m on a bit of a T-D tear right now, because they’ve been doing this carp for weeks now, with a T-D link buried in a post that’s not overt spam but isn’t particularly related to the thread, either.)

I think its already finished…., that it was yesterday.

I dont believe there’ll be long delays, I believe that everything ‘ll be as usual

There is no tropical cyclone warning for shipping (or any other cyclone warnings for that matter) in HK now.
