Floods: Seven families evacuated

SABAK BERNAM Oct 31 - Heavy rain and steady rise in water level over the past two days had forced seven families from several villages here to be evacuated.

The water level rose between 0.15 m and 0.45 m in Kampung 38 Baruh, Kampung Batu 37 and Kampung Sekendi following a heavy downpour, mostly in the afternoon, since Wednesday, a spokesman of the flood operations room said.

Five families from Kampung Batu 37 have been moved to a community hall while two families from Kampung 38 were seeking shelter in their relatives' houses in nearby villages.

However, there was no evacuation in Kampung Sekendi.

Retiree Razali Mohd Rasid, 60, and four other members of his family from Kampung Batu 37 were among those who decided to move to the community hall.

"The water level rose since two days ago. We were worried it will rise further when it rains. It's better we move out now," he said.

MEANWHILE in KUALA TERENGGANU, the situation in flood-hit Kemaman was returning to normal Sunday afternoon with only one family out of 11 remaining at the evacuation centre.

The six members in the family were expected to go home later as the flood waters in the area had receded, said Kemaman OCPD Supt Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid.

"They are now cleaning their house which was flooded yesterday," he said when contacted Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday, 52 people from 11 families were evacuated Taman Sepakat in Bukit Kuang to the Bukit Kuang Civic Centre after their houses were flooded up to 0.5 metre of water following heavy rain since Friday night.

Most of them were allowed to return to their homes this morning.

"The housing estate is situated in a low-laying area and floods easily during heavy rain," Wan Abdul Bari said.

Meanwhile, a police spokesman in Hulu Terengganu said the Hulu Terengganu-Kuala Terengganu trunk road at KM 18 near Sungai Temala was reopened at 7 am Sunday.

The road was closed to all vehicles on Saturday after it was flooded.
