SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Tropical storm Nanmadol made landfall near Dawu in the eastern county of Taiwan's Taitung early on Monday morning and is expected to reach the coastal areas of Fujian province in China early on Wednesday morning, Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau reported.

At 10:00 hours Singapore time (02:00 GMT), the severe tropical storm was centered 40km north-northeast of Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan, packing maximum sustained winds of 108 km/hour, the bureau said on its website.

There have been no immediate reports of widespread damage from Nanmadol, with businesses operating normally in the capital Taipei, according to local media.

Nanmadol struck the northern Philippines late last week, killing 16 and injuring 21, the country's national disaster council said on Monday.
