Taiwan deployed some 20,000 soldiers, evacuated 20,629 people from Green Island, Orchid Island and eastern Taiwan, and used sandbags to protect thousands of places at risk of flooding.

The Fugang Lighthouse, measuring about 10 meters, snapped from its based and fell into the sea, according to the Coast Guard Administration.

"A fisherman passed the Fugang Fishing Port and saw the lighthouse had gone," a member of the coast guard told epa by phone.
