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

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.

fairly significant issue in China. Initial theories of determination are water tight seals used in the building. Many recent construction projects in China has this issue. I'm sure there will be a fairly wide spread crackdown in short timing.
