Storm damages houses, PEDi in Kuantan

KUANTAN,. Heavy rain accompanied by strong winds yesterday evening felled dozens of trees in Semambu, one of which crashed onto a Keluarga Malaysia Digital Economy Centre (PEDi) and injured three boys.

Head of Kampung Alor Akar Ramli M Taib said during the incident at about 4 pm, the roofs of more than 10 houses were blown away as well.

Several vehicles were damaged by uprooted trees, he said.

“The boys were sent to the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital for treatment,” he told reporters here.

Meanwhile, Indera Mahkota MP Datuk Seri Saifuddin Abdullah in a Facebook posting said the Skuad Prihatin Bencana Perikatan Nasional Indera Mahkota had extended aid to the victims.

A check by Bernama showed that the cleaning-up work at Jalan Beserah had caused a traffic congestion that stretched to three kilometres.
