The typhoon struck Taiwan first. Upon doing so, the winds of Nina were 115 miles an hour. That meant Nina was a Category 3 typhoon. The storm later struck eastern China.

In Taiwan and China put together, Nina caused the deaths of more than 229,000 people. Damage was more than $1 billion.

The storm was a strong Category 4 typhoon when it struck China.
