 The strongest storm in 10 years has hit Hong Kong, with dozens in hospitals and hundreds seeking refuge in shelters.
 
Typhoon Vincente, given the highest category 10 rating by the Hong Kong Observatory, slammed the territory on Tuesday, injuring more than a 100 people, 72 of whom were hospitalized.
 
Winds of more than 140 km/h tumbled trees and forced dozens of flights to be canceled or rerouted from Hong Kong Airport. The stock exchange delayed its opening on Tuesday because of the damage caused by the typhoon.
 

Flooding from the torrential downpour was also reported in some areas.

More than 200 people were forced to stay in shelters opened by the government.
