Typhoon Mujigae brings violent tornadoes to the city of Foshan, China

At least seven people have been killed after Typhoon Mujigae with winds in excess of 180km/h battered the coast of south China.

The storm unleashed violent tornadoes to the city of Foshan, in south China’s Guangdong Province, bringing down buildings and knocking out power grids.

Typhoon Mujigae is reportedly the most powerful tropical storm in history.

Seven people have been killed, while 223 have been injured and 16 are reportedly missing.

And a building under construction was lifted from the ground.

It had taken only 57 hours for the tropical storm – with average wind speeds of 63to 87km/h – to turn into a powerful typhoon, with winds speeds of 150 to 184km/h hitting Guangdong. And that’s insane!
