Strong wind has caused several canopies at the ever popular Kuching Festival site to collapse late around 6PM just now.

Sixteen canopies were involved in the incident which injured a food vendor’s mother.

Eight tents were either blown apart or toppled over during the freak weather. The affected site is towards the end of the festival venue near the Jubilee Ground.

Trading at all other stalls continued unaffected. So too the talent show.

Kuching was hit by an hour long strong wind about 6PM.
