This week a heavy storm hit the Chinese city of Dongguan and surrounding areas in Southern China, killing at least 9 people and seriously injuring two according to the South China Morning Post.
The storm had an unusual feature — “egg-sized” hail which witnesses compared to “stones falling from the sky”. Chinese state news agency Xinhua also described it as a “tornado” with winds of 176.8 km (109 miles) per hour.
People’s Daily reports that at least 24 people in Southern China have died as a result of “wild weather” in the past few days, with 1.53 million people effected and $210 million in economic losses.
Beijing Cream has compiled some photos and videos of the storm in Dongguan. This video shows the view from a window as the hail rained down.
