Freak storm destroys dozens of houses

MALAYSIA - Freak storm destroys dozens of houses - Strong winds and heavy rain pounded several villages in Pokok Sena yesterday evening, leaving a trail of destruction in at least seven villages. Dozens of houses were damaged, including 14 badly, as powerful winds sped through Pondok Lama, Bendang Lanjut, Kampung Baru, Bendang Baru, Bukit Kecil, Batu 20 and Kampung Keda, sending roofs and planks into the air. There was no loss of life reported in the 30-minute incident, which also caused damage to furniture and electrical equipment. The storm was UNUSUAL as the rain was heavy but not widespread.
