The powerful storm slammed southern Taiwan early Thursday local time, bringing winds of up to 230 mph (370 kilometers per hour) -- faster than a Formula One race car -- at one point and torrential rains.

Meranti is the strongest typhoon since Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines in 2013 and is the strongest to come this close to Taiwan since 1959..

Strongest Typhoon In Years Hits Taiwan And Headed For China

China has issued a warning for high ocean waves as Typhoon Meranti rushes toward the mainland.

The storm hit southern Taiwan earlier last week at wind speeds of 230 miles per hour, and is the strongest typhoon since Typhoon Haiyan created devastation in the Philippines in 2013.

Schools and offices across the area have closed, and dozens of flights have been canceled.

Military and police were deployed to prepare for evacuations, but authorities do not expect significant damage or destruction.
