A landslide caused by Typhoon Bailu stranded 18 individuals in Taiwan on Saturday as the storm set out toward China's southeastern coast.
Typhoon Bailu brought heavy rains with winds up to 118 kilometers every hour as it crossed the southern portion of Taiwan.
Fourteen people were among those stranded after the Typhoon in Hualien region. Around 450 people were evacuated around the island and 12,000 families were without power late Saturday evening.
The storm caused injuries to six, including a 79-year-old man who was knocked off his bike and another man of a similar age harmed by glass that splashed into his home.
The storm— otherwise called "Ineng" — was on track to reach Fujian region in southeastern China on Sunday morning.
A landslide cleared away a distribution center in Taitung area in Taiwan's southeast.
"Wind speed wasn't that high, however what made it stand out was rain," Central Weather Bureau forecaster Yen Tseng-hsi said.
Typhoon and tropical storms, which gather strength from the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea, hit Taiwan, China, Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam from June through November every year.
