According to South China Morning Post, the winds reached speeds of up to 67 miles per hour and created conditions consistent with one category below a hurricane.

One witness told the news website Qq.com: “We saw the sky turn dark. Then suddenly the winds became really, really heavy."

“At first it didn’t affect the area [outside the airport], but after one or two minutes the winds became even stronger. The shelter at the entrance to block the rain crashed down. It was pretty scary," the passenger added.

Some at the airport during the collapse recorded the event and shared it on social media.
