Mocha – A massive thunderstorm hit the coastal city of Mocha on Oct. 29, killing one person and causing tremendous loss to houses and other complexes.
The storm also resulted in the halting of electricity. The workers at the electricity generators' compound were trapped for hours before they were rescued by the authorities.
The storm caused fear and panic to the residents of the city, and particularly to the workers at the central electricity station, which could have caught fire if it were not for the precautionary measures taken by the management and staffers at the scene.
According to residents, this is the most severe storm of its kind to hit the city, which is known for its calm and hot weather throughout the year.
