Man in East Java’s Madura Island Withstands Tornados and survived

A resident of the East Java island of Madura literally held on for dear life, as he found himself pulled by two tornadoes from opposing directions in the front yard of his house at the Pamekasan regency.

“I was pulled into the eye of one of the storms, even swept up two meters off the ground as the winds carried away the roof of my house,,” said survivor M. Tatang.

“However, I managed to hold on to the wooden banisters of my porch. This decision probably saved my life.” He added that he ran out of his house to escape getting trapped by falling rubble from the tornado. Tatang recalled that the storm only lasted 37 seconds.

“The storm uprooted acacia and other trees. One of them even hit an electric cable, setting it on fire.” The disaster is the second to hit Indonesia after another tornado hit the Gajah Mungkur reservoir in Central Java.
