The island of Hong Kong is in the middle of an area with very heavy cyclone activity and many of the neighboring countries are ravaged by frequent storms. This was the case in 2010 for example when the Severe Tropical Storm Lionrock impacted Taiwan and Fujian in China.
When looking at the path of the cyclone however, something looks strange, it’s as if the storm takes a sudden turn to avoid Hong Kong. Similar movements happened to typhoon Cimaron in 2006 that was headed for Hong Kong, and then veered off.
This has created a conspiracy theory that says that Hong Kong is protected by a force field created by the tycoon and billionaire Li Ka-Shing, specifically designed to repel severe weather like this.
At a survey conducted at a student forum in 2014, about 20% of respondents believed that “Li’s Field”, as it is known, did indeed exist.
