New Straits Times - - News/ Finding solutions -

BALING: About 40 Ta­man Har­moni res­i­dents have been hav­ing sleep­less night af­ter two landslips oc­curred in three months. Two houses were badly dam­aged while six oth­ers are in dan­ger of be­ing af­fected by the landslips.

Mohd Azhar Si­rat, 50, said his house was hit twice by landslips that dam­aged his kitchen and chil­dren’s study room.

“The first in­ci­dent oc­curred last Fe­bru­ary while the sec­ond oc­curred last month.

“We are hav­ing sleep­less nights, wor­ried that we might be swept away by mud while we sleep,” he said.

Nor Azani Abidin, 35, said he was wor­ried about the safety of his fam­ily and neigh­bours if land­slip were to re­cur.

“We hope the au­thor­i­ties will solve the prob­lem soon.”

Azani’s house was also partly dam­aged in last month’s land­slip.
