AFP, HONG KONG

On its way toward southern China, Usagi had forced the evacuation of more than 4,000 people in southern Taiwan.

Prior to hitting Taiwan, Usagi brushed the far north of the Philippines where a man and a woman drowned on Friday when their boat capsized in high seas. Another three people remain missing.

“Local disaster officials told us this was the strongest typhoon they had experienced in years,” regional civil defense officer Ronald Villa said on Sunday.
