China Resolves a Water Crisis, Then Pivots to an Earthquake – Jim Yardley

From the New York Times:

Chinese officials announced on Sunday that water had been restored in the northeastern provincial capital of Harbin after a tide of toxic river water had forced the closing of the municipal water system for five days.

But the central government, which is under criticism for its handling of the Harbin crisis, was faced with apparent devastation in southeastern China after an earthquake reportedly left several hundred thousand people without shelter.
