Strong winds bend SHC flag poles

The bent poles in front of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, 14 Oct 2017.

KOTA KINABALU – Unusually strong winds bent the three flag poles and flipped the outside billboard canvas to the other side at the Sacred Heart Cathedral on 14 Oct 2017.

This took place before the Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help at the cathedral after 5 pm.

Aside from that, the winds also broke several tree branches inside the compound of the St Peter’s College Initiation Year Formation House at Jalan Sang Kancil Tiga here.

Local weather reports say that the average hourly wind speed in Kota Kinabalu is essentially constant during October, remaining within 0.1 miles per hour of 3.1 miles per hour throughout.  But yesterday’s event certainly proved otherwise.
