Moga, June 19

The Dharamkot subdivision witnessed thunderstorm accompanied by high-velocity winds today morning that brought respite from the scorching heat, but left behind a trail of destruction.

The winds left trees uprooted at some places and branches fell on roads leading to blockades. However, no loss of life has been reported so far.

Tin sheds of many rice mills on the Lohgarh-Indgarh link road in Dharamkot were blown away. The boundary walls of some rice mills also collapsed.

Jaspal Singh and Gursharan Singh, owners of rice mills, said they had suffered huge losses. Even tractors and trailers parked under tin sheds were damaged, they said. According to reports, they both suffered losses to the tune of Rs 2 crore.

Some rice mill owners said gunny bags stored by them to deliver custom-milled rice to the Food Corporation of India were also damaged in the thunderstorm. — TNS
