Tianjin municipal authorities said on Friday that more than 6,300 residents affected by massive explosions in the city have been resettled to makeshift shelters.

Zhang Ruigang, deputy chief of Tianjin Economic Development Area or TEDA, talked about the relocation of residents at a press conference.

"Now we have relocated all the residents from the worst-hit community, the Haigangcheng community. We have set up makeshift shelters at 12 local schools including the primary school, the high school and a College, as well as three apartment buildings. We have provided them with abundant daily necessities such as bottled water, food, clothes and quilts. We also set up medical service centers at the shelters to satisfy the their basic needs."

Zhang added that hospitals in TEDA are making all-out efforts to treat those who were injured during the accident.

"We have arranged 10 hospitals and mobilized 1,675 medical workers to treat the injured people. In addition, TEDA hospital's blood storage center also organized district-wide campaigns to call on people to donate plasma for treating injured people and ensuring the abundance of plasma storage."

Zhang said that 17,000 households, 1,700 plants and 675 businesses have been affected by the blasts, and authorities are working out a plan to repair damaged homes and workshops for those who have been affected.

The authorities also allocated more than 200 buses to the district where inter-district light rail was forced out of service for residents to commute.
