Deadly tornado strikes city in SW China, killing at least 50 and injuring 130

The official Xinhua agency, quoting the municipal government, reported  the number of casualties as “at least 23 confirmed dead and 161 others injured” following a powerful storm  and torrential rain that inundated  China’s Chongqing Municipality earlier today.

A violent storm front struck Dianjiang and Liangping counties at about 2:00 a.m. local time, “toppling houses and damaging crops, with at least 23 people dead and 161 others injured, government sources said.”

“Liangping county was also hit by a tornado and hailstorm, leaving six people dead and another 34 injured. Seventeen people died and 127 people were injured in Dianjiang county, according to rough statistics.” Xinhua said.

2010 could prove one of China’s worst years for natural phenomena transformed to human-enhanced disasters. 2011 could be even deadlier.
