A massive water tornado was filmed dwarfing the various high-rise buildings in Malaysia as it gets closer to the edge of the city.
Some 50 houses in the Tenjung Tokong suburb of the city of George Town on Penang Island were damaged after the swirling waterspout ripped over the land.
75-year-old local resident Ms Nona Khalid said : “the sound of the wind was deafening and I saw part of the roof of my house being flown away by the wind..indeed it was very scary and took place for the first time in the 50 years I have been staying here.”
The Penang Civil Defence Force spokesman said that “until to date, no loss of life or injury is reported in the 15-minute storm. We are currently busy clearing the debris from houses which were ripped off by the storm.”
