DENGKIL: Strong winds and heavy rain caused several large trees to fall and damage about 20 vehicles parked at the parking lots in the Cyber Valley area here at around 5.30pm Monday (Feb 21).

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Norazam Khamis said a distress call was received at 5.36pm and seven firefighters from the Cyberjaya Fire and Rescue Department rushed to the scene.
