Watch as 'twister' sends debris swirling through Malaysian skies

 Twister-like winds blew into Pandamaran at Port Klang in Selangor, sucking up metal roofs and uprooting trees.

The weather phenomenon, which whirled the debris in circular fashion, started around 2.30pm Tuesday, after a massive thunderstorm, reported The Star.

Shortly after, video recordings of the "twister" wreaking havoc through the area began circulating over WhatsApp and other social media channels.

There were at least two different videos showing debris from the roofs of houses and other residential buildings being picked up by the swirling column of wind. 

One in particular shows images of swirling masses of dust and debris captured from inside a house while a voice can be heard shouting prayers in the background. (You can watch this above.)

Some people tweeted on the aftermath.

South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Kamarul Zaman Mamat said the "twister" stopped around 3.10pm and no injuries were reported.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department, in a statement, said the storm was caused by the high level of moisture in the air, the concentration of low-level winds coupled with the unstable atmosphere, which formed a large storm cloud.
