Yesterday around 5p.m., it suddenly rained cats and dogs. The loud crashing of raindrops prompted wifey and I rushing out to grab our clothes. When we were busy collecting our clothes, we could feel a strong gush of wind blowing around our house. Then we saw something unusual...the clouds were being blown towards one direction like really, really, really fast! It's something that we have never ever seen before. We quickly retreated into the safety of our home but we still peeked at how the ferocious wind forcing the clouds to move at its mercy.
Even the thick trunk could be easily snapped?
A moment later the whole drama ended and so we thought nothing happened. We were wrong. When we went out to have our dinner at 6:30p.m., we were utterly shocked to see so many trees being uprooted. To see one or two trees felled by heavy downpour was not uncommon...but to have twenty...or thirty huge tree being uprooted or had their trunk ripped apart from their roots is really shocking. Never have we witnessed such a destruction at this scale. After all...we have
had fairly good weather.
My wife and I pondered really long as we look at the trail of damage left by the strong wind. This was only a "small, tame" wind...what if something of a bigger entity were to hit us? What if something like a tornado, cyclone or even hurricane were to attack us? I think we would be left helpless and our chance or survival would be very, very low. Already there had been sightings of tornado in Malaysia...something which was rather impossible. However things have begun to change and it appears that our weather has changed...
