Typhoon Megi struck north-east Taiwan earlier this week and has left a trail of destruction. The powerful gusts of wind have terrorized the country, with wind speeds recorded to be as high as 150 mph (240 kmh).

Above you can see a glimpse of the destructive power of the typhoon as it blows over a 10-tonne truck. The incident happened in the southern district of Taiwan's capital city, Taipei.

Amidst the chaos, a lonely fridge is seen trying to escape the city.

The most recent estimates have stated that over 520 people have been left injured by the typhoon and sadly four have perished in Taiwan. Almost 4 million households have lost electricity after approximately 40 inches of heavy rain fell. 8,000 people had to evacuate from their homes located in mountainous areas near the coast.
