Minqing, China—A woman sits on a pile of rubble on July 10 after Typhoon Nepartak wrecked her town. The powerful tropical storm killed at least six people in China, destroyed at least 1,900 homes and forced more than 200,000 people to relocate, according to official state media. Before striking the mainland, the storm battered Taiwan, killing at least three people and injuring more than 300. The economic toll was steep too; The Guardian tallied it at 860 million yuan (about $128 million).Launch Slideshow 4 PHOTOS
