Dozens of people were injured and large numbers of buildings destroyed, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday.
 
Recent extreme weather conditions including torrential downpours added to the chaos and carnage in Jiangsu province, located north of Shanghai.
 
“Downpours, hail storms and a tornado battered parts of Yancheng city… causing many houses to topple,” said the agency.
