Beijing Storm Turns Day into Night

Strange clouds appear worldwide - In the June 5th edition of the Daily Mail, Luke Salkeld describes the strange clouds that are currently being seen in the UK. He describes them as "whipped into fantastical shapes, these clouds hang over the darkening landscape like the harbingers of a mighty storm."

But the UK isn't the only place where mysterious clouds threaten: in China, they recently turned day into night. On Yahoo.com, ABC News has a report by Stephen McDonell and Rob Hill, who say they saw the freak storm in Beijing on June 16.

Hail storms also hit areas of the country, even though it is summer.
