The official Xinhua News Agency said the tornado struck Nada town in Danzhou city early Thursday morning.

State broadcaster CCTV said dormitories for workers collapsed at two construction sites, killing eight people. One person was seriously injured and another slightly hurt. Both were sent to a hospital.
