Penang freak storm havoc

A rare occasion of strong waves of 3.5metres high hitting the west coast of Penang island and Kedah on the mainland occured on Tuesday.

Two days later, yesterday, a freak thunderstorm created havoc on the island uprooting trees and causing gridlock on major roads including jamming up the Penang Bridge. Fishermen were advised to stay onland with wind going at speeds of 40 to 50km and hour.

Pretty bad as two lives were lost at the site with one whose body has not been found. The car was buried more than 15m under from the impact of the lightning arrester crashing to the ground.

Check out video of the crash.
