Gorontalo (ANTARA News) – A woman identified as Aisa Ismail, 54, was killed on Monday after being hit by a falling tree uprooted by a whirlwind in Dutohe village, Bone Bolango District, Gorontalo province.

The strong wind accompanied by heavy rain also damaged more than 10 houses in Bone Bolango and Gorontalo city, local residents said on Tuesday.

Debby Moki, a local inhabitant, said her house collapsed and the roof was blown away by the whirlwind which lasted for around 30 minutes.

“We could do nothing but rush out of the house,” she said.

Victims of the disaster are currently being accommodated by their neighbors whose houses had remained intact. (*)
