Authorities in Taiwan now say at least seven people are dead in the the wake of the storm known as Kalmaegi.
The storm struck the island late Thursday as a typhoon, slamming into Taiwan with heavy winds and rains, triggering flash floods and landslides.
Among the casualties was a one-year-old child who was killed when a house in the southern city of Kaohsiung was buried in a landslide.
A Taiwanese soldier died when he fell into a drainage ditch in the central city of Taichung.
Meanwhile, another six people are missing in the storm's aftermath, including a man and woman whose boat capsized as they were being rescued from a flooded area.
Meteorologists have downgraded Kalmaegi to a tropical storm as it bears towards southern China today (Friday), carrying maximum sustained winds over 80 kilometers an hour.
