    Storm dumps five feet of rain on Taiwan

    CHICAGO (MarketWatch) - A tropical storm that slammed into Taiwan this week has dumped almost five feet of rain on the island nation, leading to widespread flooding and disruption of transport, the Associated Press reports. Typhoon Saola had weakened by late Thursday but the downpour continued. It has killed five people in Taiwan after cutting a deadly swath across the Philippines that cost the lives of 26 people. Dozens of flights were canceled at the country's main international airport while many railway lines were paralyzed, the wire service noted.

    Storm dumps five feet of rain on Taiwan

    Cathay Pacific suspended flights between Hong Kong and Taipai today as a typhoon hit eastern Taiwan.


    Typhoon Saola brought with it torrential rain and strong winds which triggered landslides and flooding.


    Most domestic flights were cancelled, along with some international services.


    Train services were stopped as the typhoon made its way up Taiwan's less populated and mountainous east coast..
