Last Sunday night, there was a thunderstorm. It started off with lightning
and thunder, followed by a heavy downpour.
We could hear the wind howling even though we had closed all our doors and
The storms caused havoc in the town.
Trees were uprooted and some roads became flooded with water. A few houses
in the village had their roofs blown off. Some trees fell on the roads,
causing massive traffic jams. In some areas, electric wires had snapped and
fallen across the roads, posing hazards
to vehicles as well as to pedestrians. In many parts of the city, there was
power failure which was not restored until many hours later.
The next morning, people found it difficult to get to school or to office
as certain roads were closed to traffic. Electricians were busy repairing
the street lights and clearing the broken wires. It took almost a week to
repair the damage caused by the thunderstorm.
