Storm rocks Rangoon

Storm rocks Rangoon

Electricity poles, trees, billboards and rooftops were just some of the victims of strong winds and rain that swept through Rangoon on Thursday night.

Telephone lines and electrical wires were torn down by the storm in Thanylin, some 25km south of the former capital, with areas around Kyeik-khauk Pagoda particularly affected. Power was cut for at least a day in some districts.

Reparations were taking place on Friday with electrical wires and poles being given priority.

No casualties have been reported.
