Storm Damage

A storm with straight-line winds roared through Namwianga on Saturday. The roofs were torn off the secondary girls dorm and one of the secondary classroom buildings. Several trees were uprooted or blown over. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The strangest thing is that the electricity stayed on through the entire storm. On a typical day the first drops of rain and hint of wind cause a blackout!

One section of the secondary girls dorm lost a roof
Roofing sheets from the girls dorm ended up in a nearby tree.
A section of secondary classrooms also lost a roof.
A fallen tree missed the buses by a few feet.

I am so sorry to hear about the storm damage in Namwianga. It is wonderful news that no one was hurt. However, I do know that money is always tight for repairs, so all of you will be in my prayers.

P.S. Strange about the power staying home during the storm!
