SAN RAFAEL, Bulacan — At least 28 houses were damaged after a tornado ripped through a portion of Barangay (village) Capihan here on Wednesday morning, police and local officials said.

 

No one was, however, reported hurt in the incident.

 

Superintendent Ferlu Silvio, police chief here, said residents of Capihan were awakened at around 1 a.m. by a heavy downpour that was followed by strong wind.

 

Silvio said the residents then saw the roofs of their houses being blown away and trees being uprooted by the tornado.

 

This was the second tornado that struck Bulacan since last week.

 

On July 30, at least 62 houses were either destroyed or damaged when a twister hit three villages in Baliuag and Bustos towns.

No one was reported hurt in that incident either
