A tornado and hailstorm have killed at least 98 people and injured nearly 800 in the east Chinese province of Jiangsu, according to state media.
Accompanied by torrential rain, the tornado struck the outskirts of the city of Yancheng.  Counties on the city’s outskirts saw winds of up to 125km/h (78 mph).
The search for survivors in debris has now been completed with a clean-up under way, the head of the provincial fire corps told state media.
President Xi Jinping had ordered “all-out rescue efforts” after what the Xinhua news agency said was one of the worst disasters ever to hit Jiangsu.
It was also the worst tornado to hit China in half a century, it said.
