A five-member family whose roof was torn off on Thursday night by strong winds in the village of Stavrokonnou in Paphos have been temporarily moved to a hotel while authorities are working to restore the damage, the district’s administration officer said on Friday.
During Thursday’s heavy storms in Paphos, winds tore off the tin roof of a house in Stavrokonnou. In the house, a Turkish Cypriot property, live a couple with their three children.
Paphos district administration officer, Mary Lambrou, told the Cyprus News Agency on Friday that the family was immediately moved on Thursday night to a hotel, with the expenses expected to be covered by the district’s social welfare service.
According to Lambrou, a crew from the Turkish Cypriot properties department has already replaced the roof and are working to fully restore the damage.
The strong winds also damaged another building in the same village which is vacant. No injuries were recorded.
Reports also said that four electricity poles were also cut, leaving the village without power.
