At least two large and violent tornadoes touched down in China on June 25, 2021, destroying homes, tossing cars, and leaving at least 8 people dead. Local authorities fear the death toll will continue to rise. Survey teams are on the scene today.
The first violent tornado hit Baochang in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, destroying many homes and leaving at least 6 people dead.
According to extreme weather enthusiast Eric Wang, the tornado made EF3+ damage. "There are tons of houses damaged or destroyed."

"Both tornadoes have already performed EF3+ damage," said Wang. "If these two go EF3+ rating, that means China experienced 6 EF3s in only a month span, that's unbelievable."
Wang said a third significant tornado was reported near FengNing, Hebei Province, and estimated its rating in the EF2+ range.
