BRIEF - Winds in Pegu kill 2, destroy 20 homes

Strong winds ravaged parts of Pegu Division’s Shwe Taung Township on 12 April, leaving two dead and about 20 homes destroyed. Winds felled several trees, one landing on a truck full of villagers en route to their local pagoda. Two men, aged 40 and 60, were killed, and another five people were injured. Affected villages are Kathittan, Shin Nge and Malakargong. Several servicemen and members of the National League for democracy came together to help clear the debris and see to those injured.
