On Wednesday, the strong winds that hit the country caused casualties and significant damage in several governorates, including Hama.
The Director General of Hama National Hospital, Dr. Salim Khalouf, confirmed to “Athr” that as a result of the storm, three people lost their lives and ten others sustained injuries, including fractures and bruises.
Engineer Habib Khalil, the Director General of Hama Electricity, revealed that the strong winds resulted in power outages in numerous locations. This was caused by the collapse of towers and poles at all levels of tension, interruptions in networks, and the outage of several medium-voltage exits from service.
In a related context, the source indicated that there was a power outage at several exits in the Mahardah area, including the Bukhari line, Hama Shaizer, Mhardah al-Shamali, al-Suqaylabiya Shayzar, and Asilah. Furthermore, the Sharia transformer station in the al-Ghab region remained without power.
During his speech to Athr Press, the Director General of Hama Electricity confirmed that the company’s workshops are actively working to repair faults and restore electricity to all affected exits by tightening networks.
It is worth noting that the strong winds in Hama caused damage to several vehicles as a wall or debris collapsed onto them.
