Road collapses in China sending huge plumes of smoke into the sky

Huge plumes of smoke rise into the skyline above Hangzhou after a road collapsed.

In the video, captured in Hangzhou city in Zhejiang province on Wednesday (August 28), smoke rises from Jianguo North Road after a piece of the road collapsed.
