Another storm has hit Buliisa district, leaving four people injured and 145 homesteads destroyed.
The Monday night storm hit Kigwera Sub County, hardly a week after the first one hit the neighboring Butiaba Sub County killing 30 people and destroying more than 600 homesteads.
Buliisa District Police Commander John Rutagira says the rainstorm started at around 10pm on Monday in the villages of Kirama, Kigwera and Wanseko. It lasted one hour.
The injured persons were hit by rubble from collapsing houses in Kigwera village. They included two minors and others identified as Zulaina Bulasidi and Teopista Bamuturaki. They are now admitted at Buliisa health centre IV.
Several residents are now homeless following this latest storm.
Meanwhile Julius Balinjunaki, the LCIII Councilor representing Ndandamire parish in Kigwera Sub County says that the heavy storm also carried away a boat with two fishermen on board. The incident occurred at Masaka, Wanseko landing site. The boat was found floating on water, on Tuesday with the fishermen missing.
Balinjunaki identifies the missing fishermen as Denis Biribonwa, 25, and Gilbert Tumusiime, 19, all residents of Kichoke, Kirama village.
The second storm comes at the time police is still conducting a search of the victims of a similar disaster last week.
