Watch: Hailstorm causes havoc in China

A ferocious hail and rainstorm lashed Harbin City in north-east China, wreaking mayhem on the streets and disrupting traffic.

Coin-sized hailstone pellets pelted Harbin for some 10 minutes on Sunday before a heavy rainstorm moved in, causing flooding up to 50-centimeters high in some places.
