Sky fades to black as rainstorm passes over Chinese city

The sky suddenly faded to black as a rainstorm hit the city in eastern China. The video, shot in the city of Qingdao in Shandong Province on April 29, shows lightning streaking across the darkened sky. Since the troposphere was thick, it blocked the sunlight so the sky became darker. According to reports, the rain was lighter and the sky eventually became brighter from around 4:00 pm.
