Loke Yew flat's wooden wall ripped off during thunderstorm, roofs blown off at Seri Johor public housing

KUALA LUMPUR City Hall (DBKL) has taken immediate measures to install a temporary wall at one of the units of the Loke Yew public housing flats after its wooden wall was ripped off during the thunderstorm on Friday (May 19).

It added that it had cordoned-off the debris area as a safety precaution.

“A temporary wall was fixed in the meantime before a permanent wall is installed soon,” it said in a statement today (May 20).

In October 2014, strong winds ripped the wooden walls of three Loke Yew PPA units located on the 10th, 13th and 18th floors. There were no casualties.

DBKL added that four units at the Seri Johor public housing were affected when the block’s roofs were blown off yesterday.

“Canvas have been placed as a temporary measure, while the units’ electricity supply is cut off for safety reasons.

“The occupants are staying with their relatives nearby and no relief centres have been opened at this time.”
