DrainageNews - Floods In Yan Force 400 People To Evacuate - Bernama

YAN, Sept 15 (Bernama) — Two days of heavy rain forced the evacuation of 400 villagers to a number of mosques and suraus in this district after their homes were flooded up to a metre high since Friday night. Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said the flood victims in Kampung Titi Teras and Kampung Teroi Bukit near the foot of Gunung Jerai might have to stay at the temporary relief centres for several days if the rain continue. The Yan District Office had been ordered to coordinate relief efforts with the help of the police, Civil Defence Department, Rela voluntary corps and elected representative office, he told reporters when visiting a relief centre in Kampung Titi Teras today. Mahdzir also said the State Security Council was drawing up an action plan should floods occur in other high risk districts such as Kota Star, Pendang, Padang Terap and Kuala Muda. read me
