Storm kills two children

More freak weather on Tuesday killed a three-year-old boy and a teenage girl and left two others injured in Kampot province’s Banteay Meas district.

A three-hour long afternoon thunderstorm lashed the district and caused the boy’s wooden home to collapse, killing him and injuring his mother, said Srun Lam, the district police chief.

The same storm killed a 13-year-old girl and injured a 30-year-old woman when lightning struck the home they were in, Lam added. “In the past, [lightning] only killed people who were outdoors,” Lam said. Ten houses were damaged, three of which were destroyed, and two cows struck dead by lightning.
