    Background: GUANGXI PROVINCE, CHINA

    Typhoon Ike, which caused severe damage in the Philippines in early September, struck China on September 6 causing widespread damage. The China News Service said on September 9 that at least 13 people were missing at sea off Beihai City after hurricane-force winds struck the southern Chinese province of Guangxi. Fishing boats were destroyed and factories and houses collapsed in Beihai as the typhoon swept into the coastal region. Similar damage was reported in Qinzhou, Fangcheng and the area around the provincial capital of Nanning. Typhoon Ike struck ares up to 150 kilometres (95 miles) inland and tore down 12 thousand hectares (30 thousand acres) of sugar cane in Fangcheng. Some residents of Guangxi were forced to flee to high ground when the typhoon brought floodwaters rushing through villages. While groups of residents huddled together on the high ground, ropes were strung across the rushing water and one by one the people were ferried to safety. It was the worst typhoon to hit the southern Chinese province since 1954.
