This is the terrifying moment debris plunged from a skyscraper as Cyclone Tauktae hit Pakistan on Tuesday (May 18).

A large chunk of facade from the UBL tower in Karachi was torn off by the powerful gusts battering the city. It crashed to the ground in front of shocked locals.

Cyclone Taukte has killed at least 12 in India in the state of Maharashtra and at least 13 in Gujarat. Mumbai was earlier hit with wind speed 115 kmph on Monday. Officials had to shut the airport and Bandra-Worli Sea Link bridge for hours. 

The cyclone is expected to weaken into a deep depression as it moves north-northeastwards.
