This seems to be the problem that all Chinese fear about shoddy workmanship... even if it is during a typhoon.

It's still under investigation, the authority has apologized to the public.

Another story:

A newly built Shijiazhuang railway station, costing the city over 4,000,000,000 RMB, was transformed into a beautiful "waterfall cave" after it failed to stop leakage during a heavy rainstorm, Apple Daily reports.

is it possible that the windows not closed in timely manner (or fail to closed)? The roof is built with many windows to let the sunlight in.

Need closer photos to determine the problem.

A couple of years ago at the newly built Southern Cross Station in Melbourne, we had a huge hail/rain storm. The hail blocked the drainage system on the roof and the weight of the rain water behind it caused parts of the roof to collapse.

Nature can be crazy. We just have to do our best to design for it.
