The scary aspect of Mother Nature

By now you have read & hear many news or write ups for the recent Cyclone Nargis hits Myanmar badly which lead the country to a devastating stage.

Just last week end, although there weren't any cyclone that hit my neighborhood, the rain & thunder did causes some damage.

It was like 3.34AM on Saturday 10th May. I was woken up by the huge storm with extremely loud thunder. The thunder were not just a single bang & dies down, it actually sounds non stop for almost more than an hour.

The next morning when I woke up, my husband told me there was a fallen tree & it hit a car.

Here was what I manage to capture from my kitchen window.

The broken tree truck hits a Renault Kangoo.
