Typhoon Megi has been wreaking havoc in Southeast Asia this week, killing at least 26 people in the Philippines and 12 so far in Taiwan, where 26 others are missing.

On Saturday, it made landfall in China, where many people were evacuated.

The typhoon has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but in Taiwan, rescue workers are still scrambling to deal with its deadly aftermath.
