Buses carrying tourists are missing and searches are underway throughout Taiwan. The devastation began earlier in the week, on Monday, when the storm rolled over the Phillipines, leaving 200,000 people homeless.  Heavy rains from the storm caused severe floods in Viet Nam, killing scores of people.  In south China's Fujian province, flights are cancelled, 100,000 people have left their low-lying homes and fishing boats are recalled to port. 

The storm is said to be the worst in many years.  It is gathering strength.
