A powerful tornado struck the city of Suqian in eastern China, leaving behind devastation.
Post-accident footage shows power lines on fire and cars overturned.
State media reported on Tuesday that hundreds of people had been temporarily evacuated due to the typhoon, and at least five people had died.
Local media also reported weather warnings of heavy rain and strong winds in the area.
China witnessed extreme heat and devastating floods this summer.
The impact of climate change on storm frequency is still unclear, but we know that increasing sea surface temperatures warm the air above them and provide more of the energy needed to propel hurricanes and tornadoes.
As a result, it is likely to be more intense with heavier rainfall.
