**Typhoon Vincente Lashes Hong Kong**

Officials in Hong Kong say a powerful typhoon injured more than 100 people as it slammed into the territory overnight, bringing winds that uprooted trees and sent debris flying.

Typhoon Vincente had winds of up to 140 kilometers per hour before striking Hong Kong, prompting authorities to raise a typhoon warning to its highest level since 1999.

The storm affected airports and ferry travel and forced the Hong Kong stock market to open late on Tuesday.

The storm weakened slightly as it moved into China's Guangdong province.
