Steel roof ripped clean off building by powerful winds in China (VIDEO)
A blue warning for strong winds was issued in Shuangyashan, a city in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, last Thursday, reports the People’s Daily.
The alert warned residents to close doors and windows, and even recommended against riding bicycles in the adverse conditions.
Shortly after the alert, a steel roof of a bank was filmed from multiple angles as it was completely blown off a building.
Footage captured it flipping over and crashing to the ground below, landing on a busy road.
No injuries were reported in the incident, however several streetlights and cars received extensive damage, according to local reports.
This isn’t the first time Chinese construction has lost the fight against the elements.
Several roofs caused major damage in Harbin, another city in the Heilongjiang province, after they came apart during strong winds in April, 2016.
