Massive tornado kills 6 people, injures 190 in northeast China

BEIJING A tornado blew through a city in northeast China, damaging factories and buildings, killing six people and injuring another 190, state media reported Thursday.

The tornado hit Kaiyuan, a county-level city in Liaoning province, late Wednesday afternoon, local authorities said in a brief online statement. Footage from state broadcaster CCTV showed a stretch of collapsed low-rise buildings where firefighters were working through the debris. Glass windows in homes and cars were blown out.

Liaoning resident Li Yuan said he owns a factory just 500 meters (yards) from where the tornado struck. His workers told him they initially thought it was "just a large cloud."

"But when it came closer, they felt a strong gust of wind," Li said in a phone interview. "All the trash, papers and leaves on the ground were blown into the sky. We heard ambulance and police car sirens all night."
