Falling boulders damage two houses

The Star 13/01/2006

AMPANG: The back portion of two houses were damaged when four boulders fell from a cliff in Taman Bukit Pandan, close to where another two rocks came down just over a week ago.

No one was injured in yesterday's incident as the residents of the two houses, together with their neighbours from another five, had been evacuated when the first two boulders fell on Jan 5.

Last night, those living in another three double-storey houses in Jalan B/P 3 were also asked to leave for safety reasons after the 7.30pm incident.

An elderly resident, who was evacuated last night and only wants to be known as Madam Chow, said she felt the ground trembling and heard loud noises while cooking dinner.

“After the incident that occurred last week, I knew what was happening and wanted to run but I was so scared that I could not move for a while.

“I then shouted loudly for my grandchildren, aged six and 10. One of them was bathing but I told him not to get out of the house and not to worry about his clothes,” she said.

The Ampang Municipal Council had put personnel on stand-by at the site since last week and has also cordoned off the area.

Pandan MP Datuk Ong Tee Keat has arranged for the affected residents to stay at a hotel here.
