A 50-year-old man in south-eastern Taitung County was swept away by floods Sunday, emergency services said. Rescuers found his body further downstream.

The Central Weather Bureau lifted land and sea warnings Monday, although heavy rains were expected to continue.

Fung-Wong brought widespread flooding and displaced nearly 200,000 people in the Philippines.

The storm moved northwards to Taiwan over the weekend, bringing torrential rain, and leading at least 13 local authorities to close schools and government offices on Sunday.

Rail transportation and domestic and international flights in Taiwan were returning to normal.

The weather bureau said the storm left Taiwan early Monday and was moving northwards along the east coast of China.
