Typhoon Usagi made landfall in China on Sept. 22, killing at least 25 people and causing over $500 million in estimated damage. Around 226,000 people were evacuated from Guangdong Province, where the storm did most of its damage.

Usagi brushed by Hong Kong, severely interrupting travel and leading to the cancellation of over 900 flights in Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
