Typhoon Soudelor, reported to be the strongest of the year, made landfall in Taiwan earlier this morning and now heads toward the mainland, where it has already been causing some super massive waves to hit shore.
The fierce rains and winds have left four people dead in Taiwan thus far, along with a trail of devastation. Among the dead are a firefighter and a 8-year-old girl, reports the AP.
