Videos posted online of the first tornado showed tossed cars, including at least one flipped on its side, and debris swirling in the air above a high-rise building.
CCTV reported that power and road service had been restored in the Suqian area.
Tornadoes are rare in China, but have caused deaths in Jiangsu in recent years. One person in the province was killed in a tornado last year and four in 2021. Another tornado killed eight people in the city of Wuhan on the same day.
