Typhoon Usagi has affected 3.5 million people in China

A super typhoon has hit Hong Kong on its way to south China. Typhoon Usagi has killed at least 25 people in Guangdong province, south China, but Hong Kong has escaped the worst of the storm. Here is Juliana Liu reporting from Hong Kong on 23 September:

台风袭击香港和中国南部海岸。台风“天兔”已造成广东省25人死亡,但香港躲过了最严重的暴风雨。以下是 Juliana Liu 923日从香港发来的报道:

The streets of Hong Kong, one of the world's most densely packed cities, are eerily quiet. Residents had been preparing for days for a super typhoon, the worst in decades.

But the storm weakened on its way to south China. Though there has been damage caused, it has been far less than originally anticipated.

About a dozen people here have sought treatment in hospital. There has been some flooding, and of course, hundreds of flights have been cancelled.

With the wind and rain abating, the city is likely to return to business as usual by mid-morning.
