Incidentally, the previous thunderstorms had also occurred on a Wednesday.

The official said seven houses were damaged, 37 cattle perished. Apart from that several others were injured in thunderstorm accidents last night.

A government release asked ministers and district magistrates to visit the affected areas. Financial help for the families of deceased will be provided after their post-mortem report, he said.
