Eastern China's Shandong Province was hit by its largest tornado outbreak in more than 10 years on July 11, 2021. At least 10 tornadoes were reported, with at least 3 of them violent. The reports are still coming in and the number of reported tornadoes is rising.

A violent tornado moved directly into downtown Shenxian around 13:00 UTC on July 11, 2021, causing 'catastrophic' damage.

The twister debarked hardwood, tossed cars, leveled a number of homes, and left several people injured, according to extreme weather enthusiast Eric Wang.

Wang shared what he described as 'unbelievable footage' …captured at the time the violent roaring wedge moved directly into downtown Shenxian. "The worst case scenario," Wang said.

Another possible violent tornado flattened entire forests before moving directly into downtown Gaotang shortly after the Shenxian event.

"Seems like a 1.6 km (1 mile) wide rain-wrapped wedge [tornado] moved directly into downtown Gaotang, the worst-case scenario you can imagine," Wang said.

Another possible major tornado hit BingZhou at midnight local time. This tornado destroyed manufactured houses, completely tore down reinforced concrete telephone poles and threw vehicles.
