We had a thunderstorm with a force 12 wind on the afternoon of May 10th. During it ,the pinnacle of the Zhenfeng pagoda in our city was blown down. Zhenfeng pagoda is our city's landmark which was built in 1570 A.D.,7 tiers and 69.86m in height.We all feel so sad for it . Hope the departments concerned will soon make it restore to it's former glory! The photo on the right hand is what it is like now.

@Juliaacv It is said that the wind scale is determined by clocking how far the wind travels one second,for instance force 12 wind is 32.4-36.9 m/second.However Beaufort Wind Scale is different from that.
