Does the storm drop durians along its path?

Durian Storm!? haha I'd be more worried of the smell then anything

I don't know, B... With those spikes on the outer shell, I'm not sure I want durians falling on my head! But then again, one would think people would be able to evacuate the area in plenty of time since the smell would arrive long before the storm.

The smell is fine, but agree that basketball sized spikey dorians pelting down on your head wouldn't neccessarrily be so much fun.

Jeez - a smelly, spikey storm... OK, I'll take the -25 for all of February over that one.

Hien, where was the durian storm when I was over there? Seems they were damn hard to come by in October, and now a storm of them!

John, back in October, the first durian season was already over. If only you had come a week earlier, then you could have had the chance to taste some of the last remaining ones of the season.

The second durian season of the year has just started, and it coincides with the storm! I think this is how the storm got its name.

Hien - take cover!!!!! I don't think you want to be outside with durians whizzing by your head at 55-60kph!!! We'd hate for you to have surgery again - this time to remove the smelly spikey fruit from your skull. Have you set up the nets to catch them as they fly by??? You could be set with durians for the next year without having to buy them.
