Death toll has climbed to 99 after a fierce tornado and storm hit east China's Jiangsu Province, which also left 846 others injured, local authorities said Sunday.

A powerful tornado and hailstorm pummelled through farmland and factories in Yancheng City of Jiangsu on Thursday, toppling houses, damaging wire poles and destroying a solar panel factory where hazardous chemicals had been stored.

The city government said 1,591 homeless victims have been accommodated in temporary shelters in two counties, and rescuers are rushing to repair electricity, water and telecommunication facilities.
