Police and firemen attempt to remove a tree that crushed a taxi after Typhoon Soulik hit Taipei on July 13, 2013. Thousands of people were evacuated in Taiwan and the entire island declared an 'alert zone' as Typhoon Soulik made landfall, killing one person and injuring seven. In the capital Taipei, a 50-year-old police officer died after he was hit in the head by a brick that came loose during the typhoon, the Central Emergency Operation Centre said.
