Hunan Province July 10, 2007. A people's war against mice has 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.
