A hundred people remain unaccounted for in Taiwan after Typhoon Morakot hit their village, causing a mudslide. And more than a million people in Eastern China have been forced to leave their homes.

The storm developed out in the Pacific before making landfall first in Taiwan, and then on mainland China.

Chris Hogg reports from Shanghai.
