A massive tornado has blown through the eastern Russian city of Blagoveshensk.

This video taken by an onlooker shows debris from the streets being lifted up and hitting a power line.

At least one person was killed and 38 were injured in the storm, when trees were uprooted and cars overturned.

Tornadoes in Russia are rare and there have been only three very serious ones recorded in the entire history of the country.

Nearly 215,000 people live in Blagoveshensk which is close to Russia's border with China.
