Dear Drainage Services Department,

I am a researcher at the University of Science and Technology and I am working on flood modeling. I noticed that flooding was severe during the 8th Oct 2023 rainstorm. I would like to make a request for the record of those flooding reports in Hong Kong on 8th Oct 2023 rainstorm, including information of locations and water depth, if available.

In addition, the rainfall is also severe on 9th Oct 2023 rainstorm, could you please aslo list the record of those flooding reports on 9th Oct 2023, including information of locations and water depth, if available.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Lo
