Tens of thousands of homes lost power across Taiwan on Wednesday as world’s strongest Typhoon Meranti hit the island, forcing schools and businesses to close and flights to be cancelled.

Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau has issued warning that the Category 5 storm would threaten several southern and eastern cities, including Kaohsiung and Hualien, with strong winds, torrential rain and flooding. Companies and schools in Kaohsiung and other cities have closed and almost 1,500 residents have been evacuated.
