BEIJING – A typhoon has struck mainland China after lashing Taiwan, killing two, injuring hundreds and leaving hundreds of thousands without power or water.
Typhoon Dujuan passed through Taiwan for three hours on Monday night, bringing high winds and rain.
Taiwan's Central News Agency said Tuesday that the typhoon had left two people dead, 324 injured and six mountain climbers missing. A total of 710,000 households were without electricity and 370,000 without water. It cited the government's emergency operations center.
Bon Jovi canceled concerts planned for Monday and Tuesday in Taiwan because of the storm, which were to be the first ones there by the American rock band in 20 years.
Typhoon Dujuan made landfall in southeastern Fujian province Tuesday morning. Ahead of its arrival, thousands of fishing boats returned to port.
