MaxFM Waingapu – Although the two tropical cyclone seeds have moved further away from the Sumba island of East Nusa Tenggara province, the residents of the East Sumba region have been affected by the impact.

A fisherman in Kawangu village, Rahi Tarapanjang, mentioned that strong winds and waves that arrived a few days earlier had destroyed fishing boats owned by the local fishermen.

“Strong winds and high waves have eroded the shoreline for about 10 meters, then the anchoring boats were pushed to the road. Several government-assisted boats had their wings broken,” said Rahi Tarapanjang, (Tuesday (19/03/2024) to MaxFM Waingapu at Kawangu beach.

Rahi Tarapanjang, a loyal listener of Radio MaxFM Waingapu, also mentioned that the waves crashed against the shore and reached the roadside. Beluntas bushes were hurled away that they withered.
