look up in the air! it's a bird. it's a plane. it's a car.

Homeowners understand that unusually bad weather may bring damage to their roofs: wind, lightning, hail, falling trees, flying cars.

Last week, in Yanbain city China, a driver encountered a strong windstorm and a fast corner at the same time. The combination of the two launched his car off the road and onto the roof of a nearby house.

The driver of the car told the China News Network, "Before I realized what was happening, my car had landed on the roof..."

The high winds created a lot of damage. One repair shop said that they had to replace 30 windshields in one day-- the windshields had not been broken by wind-blown objects, but simply blown-in by the force of the wind.
