Video: an impressive storm swept away planes in China

A raging storm that hit eastern China on Friday left 11 dead as a result, more than a hundred injured and an undetermined number of missing.

In this context, a plane that was parked at the airport in the coastal city of Nantong, Jiangsu province, moved untimely by the force of the wind and turned on itself, as can be seen in a video published by the newspaper People’s Daily.

A security camera at Nantong airport captured the moment when strong hurricane force winds, exceeding 150 kilometers per hour, they managed to move the plane from its place, parked on the runway.

The storm caused trees, utility poles, and even houses to collapse, sending the city into widespread chaos. The dead were washed up into the Yangtze River or struck by falling trees and power poles, authorities said, according to a report by the BBC.

The number of missing continues to rise. On the coast, of the eleven people who were in a fishing boat that wrecked, only two were rescued, and the other nine are still missing. There was also damage from large hail, local media reported, while the strong wind tore the plastering of the buildings.
