Storm disaster: Dr Mahathir checks on destruction in Pantai Tengah

Last Update: 12/08/2019

LANGKAWI, Aug 12 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad took time check on the destruction along Pantai Tengah here, which was severely affected in the Typhoon Lekima storm disaster on Friday.

Although his programmes in Langkawi today are packed, Dr Mahathir drove a Lexus SUV himself to see with his own eyes the destruction caused by the storm.

The prime minister was accompanied by his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohammad Ali.

Dr Mahathir, who is also Langkawi MP, spent about 15 minutes at the location.

Uprooted trees had been cleared away but damage involving business premises were still visible throughout the area.

On Friday, strong winds and a thunderstorm hit the area at about 7.45 pm causing damage to business premises, uprooting trees, some of which hit vehicles, and leaving electrical cables lying  on roads.
