High tide victims still seeking shelter
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
