Signals No. 5, 6, 7 and 8 were used to signify gales from the NW, SW, NE and SE respectively between 1931 and 1972. To avoid misunderstanding by the public, the Signals No. 5 to 8 were replaced by the Signals No. 8 NW, 8 SW, 8 NE and 8 SE in 1 January 1973. The Signals No. 8 NW, 8 SW, 8 NE and 8 SE between 1946 and 1972 as shown in this database were originally the Signals No. 5 to 8 used at the time.
