It's been three days since a powerful tornado with hailstones churned through Yancheng city, leaving 99 people dead and over 800 others injured.

As the search for survivors winds down, emergency workers are racing against time to safely dispose of highly combustible chemicals stored at a solar panel factory. Telecommunication companies continue to work at full capacity to restore service to every affected township.

The central government has pledged 160 million yuan, or 24 million US dollars, for disaster relief in the province. The money will go towards resettlement, funeral services, and rebuilding homes, among other things. The Ministry of Finance said it would provide more relief funds later if necessary. Local authorities have briefed the media on the situation.
