Floods hit Malaysia’s Terengganu, Kelantan

Floods today hit Malaysia’s east coast states of Terengganu and Kelantan, forcing the evacuation of 47 people in Terengganu by this evening (21 Nov 2011).

The floods in Kelantan, however, were just flash floods. But heavy rain and strong winds damaged several houses in the fishing village in Pantai Sabak near Kota Baharu. The roofs of some houses were blown away.

In Terengganu, floods occurred this morning in two districts -- Besut and Hulu Terengganu -- following heavy rain overnight and then spread to Marang by Monday evening.

Thirty people have been evacuated in Besut to the Kampung Merbau Menyusut Mosque, 13 in Hulu Terengganu to the Kampung Kolam community hall and four in Marang to Sekolah Pengkalan Berangan, according to a spokesman of the National Security Council in Terengganu.

The levels of several major rivers have risen and the people living along their banks have been advised to be on the alert for floods.

A spokesman of the Drainage and Irrigation Department said the level of Sungai Nerus at Kampung Langkap was 22 metres, above the danger mark of 21.5 metres, and in Kampung Bukit, 12.10 metres (12 metres).

The level of Sungai Telemong in Kampung Paya Rapat was 21.2 metres, breaching the warning mark of 21 metres, and that of Sungai Calok Setiu had risen to 8.57 metres, higher than the warning mark of 8.5 metres.

Terengganu is currently experiencing moderate to heavy rainfall.

The flash floods in Kelantan occurred in several areas, but mainly in the Kota Baharu and Pasir Puteh districts.

Kelantan National Security Council secretary Roslee Mamat said the situation in the state is under control and the levels of rivers had not breached the alert point.
