Typhoon Usagi killed several people after crashing ashore in southern China on 23 September 2013. Earlier, Usagi made landfall near Shanwei city in Guangdong province northeast of Hong Kong on 22 September 2013. Approximately, 226000 people were relocated due to the storm and more than 7100 houses collapsed or were badly damaged.The typhoon cost the province 529.5 million US dollars in direct economic losses.

Usagi had previously killed two people in the Philippines and unleashed landslides and power outages across southern Taiwan at the weekend as it ploughed through the Luzon Strait with ferocious winds and heavy downpours.

It was the strongest typhoon to strike Hong Kong city since 1979.

On its way towards southern China, Usagi had forced the evacuation of 3,400 people in southern Taiwan. Twelve people were injured in Kinmen, a Taiwan-controlled island off China's Fujian province, after they were hit by falling trees.
