She just hugged her child and ran to her mother’s house not far away, shouting for everyone to know. Before she could regain consciousness, her house was swept into the air by the wind. Suddenly, both mother and sister’s family floated in the vortex and fell into the rice field. “The tornado swept away, the light ones flew, the heavy ones collapsed. The villagers came to help rearrange the pillars. Then they had to borrow more to rebuild the house,” said Ms. Nay H’Mat.
Next to the house on stilts with a few pillars in the sky, Mrs. Nay H’Mui (Mrs. Nay H’Mat’s mother) quietly picked up a few things from the rubble. Not far away, a pole of rice next to the house was also tossed by the wind. Many corrugated iron sheets were blown down by the wind, causing the rice to be broken across the body. Ms. Nay H’Mui’s family belongs to a poor household, and is still in dire straits. “The cyclone passed, suddenly we fell into the scene of the sky and the earth. The neighbors were so merciful that they let us live for a few days,” said Mrs. Nay H’Mui chokingly.

But not long after working, she had to rush back to her hometown to rebuild a house for her children to live in. Ms. Jin confided: “When I heard my son called to the newspaper, the roof was blown off, my guts were like fire, I rushed to catch the bus back in the night. The company also created favorable conditions and gave some applications. salary. These days I have to run around to rebuild my house.”
