A family in Tuirara, Nasinu was lucky to escape unhurt yesterday afternoon when a nearby tree fell on their corrugated iron house, due to strong winds.
Ravindra Prasad says he and his family were in their living room at 7pm, watching television when the huge tree crashed through their ceiling, bringing rain and strong winds into the house.
Prasad says he had to rush his elderly parents and children to a neighbour’s house before returning to watch over their belongings.
Early this morning, several neighbours and relatives were seen at the residence to offer assistance to the family.
Prasad estimates the damage at a cost of approximately $15,000.
