Typhoon Soudelor lashed Taiwan, killing six people, and then dumped heavy rain and winds on the Chinese mainland, leaving at least 21 people dead with a further five missing. The storm downed trees, traffic lights and power lines on the island of Taiwan, causing more than four million households to lose electricity. More than 500 flights were cancelled or delayed.

Soudelor made landfall in China's Fujian province and was downgraded into a tropical storm as it moved across the region. Heavy rain triggered mudslides in mountainous Pingyang county in Zhejiang province, north of Fujian.
