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 had been killed by China's extreme weather.
