An strong earthquake hit Pu’er, the tea-making city in Yunan province, southwest China on Sunday, bringing down over 90,000 rooms and killing at least three people, one a 4-year-old, and injuring more than 300.

The earthquake forced the evacuation of 180,000 residents.

Power was cut to the city and the only communications possible were by mobile phone, a local official said.

Water supplies were also damaged.

Pu’er, lies near to the border with Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam.
