A violent short-lived rain storm accompanied by strong winds swept across many parts of Bali mid-afternoon on Monday, January 24, 2010, uprooting trees, causing property damage, injuring at least 6 people and killing one man when a tree uprooted by the winds fell on top of him.

According to DenPost, the strong winds, some in the form of mini tornadoes, affected almost every region on the island.

Bejang Haji Banjar, Tegalalang, Gianyar, which is north of Ubud, saw winds knock down a sacred Banyan tree estimated to be hundreds of years old at 2:15 pm on the Monday afternoon. Seven local villagers were struck by huge tree injuring six and killing outright a 48-year-old female trader Ni Nyoman Puri. Two of the injured were warded at the Gianyar Sanjiwani Hospital with fractures and other injuries. The fallen tree, an iconic landmark in the Banjar, also caused extensive damage to a public meeting hall, a community security post and knocked out electrical power to the surrounding community.

Damage was also reported to 17 rooftops in the Legian area of Kuta and damage to six motorcycles and a car when a mango tree fell during the wind storm.

More than a dozen homes in Sidakarya, South Denpasar, lost portions of their tiled roof to the wind storm with one young man suffering significant injuries when a tree fell in front of the motorcycle he was driving near the District Chief (Camat) office in South Denpasar on Jalan Raya Sesetan. Two more people also suffered injuries of a similar cause near the Tunas Harapan school in South Denpasar.

Tens of trees were felled in a wide path stretching from Ubung, Peguyangan Kaja, Jalan Hayam Wuruk, Jalan Waribang, Sesetan and Jalan Gumitir.

Testifying to the wide area affected by the storm, a large tree also fell to the ground in the village of Gelgel in the Klungkung regency of Bali where an elderly man suffered abrasions when he was struck by the uprooted tree.
