Province July 10, 2007. A people's war against mice had been launched as some 2
billion mice were forced to flee their holes submerged by ravaging flood waters
around the Dongting Lake in the region. The massive mice invasion wrecked havoc
to dikes and ruined eight million mu of (533,333 hectares) farmland in 22
counties. More than 100 people has been killed by China's extreme weather.
