Villagers in the area of Billy White are concerned about a freak storm that happened this morning around 9:30am. Love News spoke to some of the villagers in the area and this is what they had to tell us.
Resident: “We experienced something very scare. It was at about nine o’clock that the storm occurred, like a tornado. The roofs of the houses blew off and it was very scary. I felt nervous. I quickly thought of my children. It was really scary. The roof of my house blew off and we’re just asking for help from anyone.”
Resident: “At about ten minutes to nine o’clock I was inside and we heard a loud noise. When my sister looked through the window they saw a strong wind that blew the trees off there. The strong winds continued and almost blew off the zinc roofing. It blew the wall down. Over to the front there some zincs were blown away and some plantain trees. It was something very scary that I hadn’t experienced.”
As you heard, the affected families are asking for help from NEMO.
