South China prepares for more storms after 24 die

- +

Southern China was warned Friday to prepare for more heavy rain and hailstorms after 24 people died when severe weather lashed five provinces, including a "super-tornado" in one city and egg-sized hailstones. 

Hailstones are shown after a heavy storm hit parts of Dongguan, in south China's Guangdong province, March 20, 2013. South China has been warned to prepare for more heavy rain and hailstorms, as five provinces continue to repair damage caused by severe weather which resulted in the deaths of at least 24 people.

The extreme weather will continue until Sunday, the China Meteorological Centre said, after parts of the country were battered by huge hailstorms and heavy rain which caused widespread devastation and a ferry to capsize.
