42 EVACUATED FROM HOMES

LEDANG: A total of 42 people from nine families were evacuated from their homes in Kampung Teluk Rimba and Parit Sialang, near here, due to floods on Friday night.

A downpour for over two hours, which had started at 8pm, caused floodwater in several low lying areas to rise by over half a metre when the nearby Sungai Kesang broke its banks.

Kundang Teluk Rimba sub-district chief Jamaluddin Jamil said affected residents of the two villages were evacuated to a flood relief centre at the Penghulu Long community hall in Kampung Teluk Rimba.
