High tide vic­tims still seek­ing shel­ter

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: Some 167 evac­uees from 43 fam­i­lies are still be­ing housed at a re­lief cen­tre in Ka­par, Klang, due to the high tide phe­nom­e­non. A spokesman at the State Dis­as­ter Op­er­a­tions Room said the evac­uees were res­i­dents of Kam­pung Batu 5, in Ka­par and were be­ing ac­com­mo­dated at the Datuk Ah­mad Razali Mul­ti­pur­pose Hall.

On Wed­nes­day, all re­lief cen­tres that were opened to ac­com­mo­date evac­uees in Sabak Ber­nam, and one in Klang, were closed after the evac­uees were al­lowed to re­turn home.

Mean­while, Sun­gai Pi­nang Fire and Res­cue station head Zaidi Ah­tan said Kam­pung Batu 5 was flooded again when a bund, which was re­paired on Wed­nes­day, burst again early yes­ter­day.

He said the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties were mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion.

In SUN­GAI PETANI, 94 res­i­dents in six vil­lages who were forced to leave their homes due to the high tide phe­nom­e­non two days ago have yet to re­turn home and are still at four re­lief cen­tres in Kota Kuala Muda. – Ber­nama
