Travellers at Nanchang Changbei International Airport in China's Jiangxi province screamed in fright when part of the airport's ceiling collapsed on Sunday afternoon (March 4) due to gusty winds.

The incident took place at the entrance of the airport's Terminal 2 arrival hall at around 3.30pm, local media reported.

No one was hurt, though the airport building was badly damaged.

This comes as torrential downpour brought strong winds of up to 37 m/s to the area.
