Lucy Pesam, from Sumkar district, was cooking in the kitchen of her family home when strong winds blew against the corrugated roof.
She was inside the kitchen, making fire, when suddenly the building started shaking. After what seemed like minutes, the roof over her head began falling.
Luckily, stools built inside the kitchen held it up while the timber braces provided a gap for her to run out.
Strong winds currently experienced in the island regions of Madang confirm recent warnings issued by the PNG National Weather Service (PNGNWS).
