Winds during freak storm wreak havoc in Penang
GEORGE TOWN: Strong winds during a freak storm wreaked havoc at several places here with trees being uprooted, and roofs and signboards blown off.
Among the worst hit areas were Lintang Delima, Taman Besi and Jalan Chik Wan Arrifinin Jelutong where trees got uprooted.
Other affected roads were Jalan Gottlieb, Gurney Drive, Lorong Batu Lancang, Jalan Masjid Negeri, Jalan Hamilton, Jalan Tengah, Jalan Van Pragh, Jalan Udini and others.
The storm, which began at 8.55am yesterday, also saw scaffoldings collapse on a car in Jalan Pintal Tali.
Even the zinc roofing of the outdoor parking space at Gama Supermarket in the corner of Jalan Gurdwara and Jalan Datuk Keramat, was blown away.
At least 11 houses in Jalan Tokong Batu, Jelutong and Jalan Shaik Madar in Air Itam, had their roofs blown away too.
Scaffolding in a project is under way at the chimney lane when loosening screws, coincidentally by the winds collapsed, hit by a passing vehicle.
Luckily, Shou XING Gong Su Zhaoxiong, 75, owner of the car, and his wife, Indonesian maids are injury-free. He is Malaysia Chinese Su Wenjie, President of the Penang branch of the travel industry association’s father.
