For those with knowledge of China, WeChat is a great resource for staying tuned with situations in various cities.

Sources to avoid: 

As ever please avoid any Tabloid press (Daily Mail, Express, Sun, Mirror etc), and other websites that need to compete for clicks.

Social media tends not to give an accurate representation, there is a tendency for people to enjoy ‘marking yourself safe’ or videos with no context or accurate explanations to share the publicity generated by crises such as this one. Twitter, Youtube, Facebook have been particularly bad.
