A major typhoon in eastern China has triggered a landslide and killed at least 30 people with 18 others missing, Reuters reported Sunday, citing state media.

The big picture: Typhoon Lekima made landfall in Wenling, between Taiwan and China's financial capital Shanghai, early Saturday, per the BBC, which reports authorities saying torrential rains have forced more than 1 million people to evacuate. Here's the impact of the storm, in photos.

Joe Biden's campaign released his 2019 tax returns on Tuesday, showing that he and his wife, Jill, paid nearly $300,000 in federal taxes last year.

Why it matters: The release, timed just hours before the first presidential debate, comes days after a bombshell New York Times report said that President Trump paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017. Biden's team is hoping to make the tax contrast a sticking point during their showdown.

New York City's coronavirus positivity rate has ticked up to 3.25%, its highest since June, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The jump — from 1.93% on Monday — came on the first day that public elementary classrooms reopened in the city after months of closures, but guidelines state that all public schools will have to shut if the citywide seven-day positivity rate stays above 3%.
