Taiwanese authorities are rushing to repair roads in the mountainous hot spring town of Wulai, where 1100 people are without electricity or water after Typhoon Soudelor ripped through the island.
Landslides triggered by the storm, which hit in the early hours of Saturday and was billed as the most powerful typhoon this year, blocked the main road into the northern township just south of capital Taipei.
"People are now able to walk past the area after our emergency repair, but it may take another three or four days for vehicles to get through," Chiang Chien-ming, a chief road engineer at the transportation ministry, told AFP.
About 100 residents in Xiaoyi village who were previously unaccounted for were contacted on Saturday night and were safe.
Soldiers searching the area later also contacted another 10 people previously reported to be unreachable, a spokesman for the New Taipei City fire bureau told AFP.
More than four tonnes of supplies have been flown into the area, mostly instant noodles, bread, and water.
Television footage of the once scenic aboriginal town showed damaged houses, cracked roads, and mounds of rubble.
Soudelor caused at least eight deaths in Taiwan as it flooded rivers, ripped up trees, and triggered landslides.
More than 50,000 households were still without power on Monday evening, more than two days after the storm.
