Hong Kong residents are waking up to a city on virtual lockdown as Typhoon Nida, which made landfall in the early hours of Tuesday local time, continues to lash the region.

Winds of up to 145 kilometers per hour (90 miles per hour) were reported in some parts of the city, according to the Hong Kong Observatory, which also warns of the potential risks of flooding.

More than 180 flights to or from Hong Kong's airport have been canceled, and bus, tram and ferry routes have been suspended.
The Observatory said Tuesday morning that Nida has "weakened into a severe tropical storm and is moving gradually to the inland areas of Guangdong."
