Freak storm hits village in Hulu Besut, uproots trees, damages home

BESUT: Four houses and two shop lots were damaged during a storm that hit Kampung Batu 13, Hulu Besut here, yesterday.
No one was hurt but the storm which hit the village at 8.40pm uprooted trees which blocked roads and caused traffic congestion from Kampung Keruak to Jertih town.
The victims of the damaged house have since sought shelter with other family members and relatives.
Kampung Batu 13 Village Security and Development committee chief Amran Mustafa said the incident happened very fast and the victims had to literally run for their lives.
“They were afraid of getting hurt as there was debris flying everywhere. The force of the storm uprooted some trees which fell across the road,” he said.
