Blowing in the Wind

Sudden Wind Storm Causes Property Damage in Sanur, Bali

(5/18/2014)

A series of small tornado-like whirlwinds (angin puting beliung) struck areas on Sanur late on the night of Monday, May 12, 2014 causing damage over a wide area, including Sanur, Banjar Semawang and the village of Sanur Kuah.

The head of the rehabilitation and reconstruction section of Denpasar Disaster Alleviation Agency (BPBD-Denpasar), I Made Prapta, told NusaBali that 10 households suffered damage in the Blanjong Community, Sanur Kauh; 20 households in Semawang and 3 places of business.

"Mostly the damage occurred to roofing tiles with damage ranging from 10 tiles to hundreds of tiles. We are inventorying the damage to determine the amount of assistance we will provide," said Prapta.

Meanwhile, community and religious leaders see a deeper, more spiritual meaning to Bali's changing weather patterns and the most recent windstorm that ravaged parts of otherwise peaceful Sanur.

When Sanur fisherman Mangku Dalem Semawa was asked to comment, he replied: "Ten keni antuk, sawireh alam sampun usak" (the weather can no longer be predicted because nature is damaged).

Mangku Dalem Semawa suggested that according to local folklore, the strong winds in Sanur were also connected with the missing body of a young Balinese man swept out to sea the day before at Gumicik beach in nearby Ketewel. "Every time someone floats away, the sea becomes angry. After they find the body the seas will quiet down," he said.

The body of the missing Balinese youth was recovered by Search and Rescue officers late on Tuesday, one day after the storm,

Semawa said he was thankful that none of the Sanur fishing community were at sea on the evening of the storm, explaining: "When someone's body has drifted out to sea, this is what happens. Our fishermen won't go to sea because the nature conditions are not good, as they normally are."

Semawa together with fellow fishermen of Sanur teamed up to help clean up fallen branches, leaves and roofing tiles around Sanur on the morning after the wind storm.
