"At least two people were reported to have been killed, the National Fire Agency, which is Taiwan’s general disaster response agency, said on Friday. Many of those injured were hit by falling objects as wind gusts reached 140 miles per hour, the agency said. The storm hit Taiwan as a Category 4 typhoon, the second-most powerful category, according to Tropical Storm Risk, a private forecasting organization based in Britain. The eye of the storm came ashore at 5:50 a.m. in Taitung County, and the typhoon slowed as it moved west. It caused power outages for about 360,000 households, according to the Taiwan Power Company."
