Typhoon Rammasun, the strongest typhoon to hit China's south in 41 years, made landfall on Friday. The much smaller typhoon Matmo is already affecting Taiwan, and will make landfall Wednesday morning.
The death toll from the strongest typhoon to hit China's south in decades was raised to 46 on Tuesday, increasing the overall toll to 151 people dead in three countries just before a second storm approaches land.
