IPOH (BERNAMA) – Strong winds blew off the roofs off seven units of the Seri Kepayang Apartment in Jalan Ghazali Jawi on Tuesday.

A Bernama check on the scene found that the housing units, located on the 12th floor of the apartment not only had their roofs blown off but they also were inundated by rain water.

One of the victims, Salina Jusoh, 54, said in the incident at about 5pm, she was about to make ablution to perform Asar prayer when she heard a loud noise coming from the top of her house.

“I’m still traumatised over the incident…I saw bricks being blown away outside my house and the ceiling in my bedroom suddenly collapsed,” she told reporters yesterday.

The mother of four said she had lived in the home for five years and this was the first time such an incident happened.
