At least 16 people have been injured in one of the most powerful typhoons to hit Taiwan in recent years.
Typhoon Haitang slammed into Taiwan on Monday, injuring 22 people and forcing government offices, schools and financial markets to shut across the island.
Local media said four people had died in the lashing winds and torrential rain, but the National Fire Agency said it could not confirm the deaths were related to the typhoon.
