In Taiwan, almost 4 million homes lost power and 10 provincial highways remained closed Wednesday, one day after heavy rain and sustained winds of 160 kilometers per hour blanketed the island, Taiwan's official Central News Agency reported.
The authorities of China issued the third-highest weather warning and sent operating groups to the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Hunan for help.
Fifteen people have been rescued and 20 others remain missing, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The heavy rains came with Typhoon Megi, which hit China on Wednesday.
13 people have been rescued and 27 are still missing after a landslide triggered by typhoon rain in Suichang County.
It is hard to estimate the number of missing, officials said.

The injuries in Taiwan included eight Japanese tourists travelling in a tour bus that turned on its side in central Taiwan.
