When the year is coming to an end, it signifies the arrival of monsoon season. This calls for Malaysians to brace themselves for strong wind, heavy rain and thunderstorms.
According to NST, the Malaysian Meteorological Department has forecasted that bad weather is expected over a few states in Peninsular Malaysia. The situation will persist from Sunday (29 October) to Thursday (2 November).
Since it’ll be raining cats and dogs, Malaysians who live in low-lying areas are urged to take safety precautions and be prepared for the upcoming flood.
Here’s a list of the flood-prone areas.
- Perak – Manjung, Perak Tengah, Bagan Datoh and Hilir Perak
- Selangor – Gombak, Petaling Jaya, Klang, Kuala Langat, Sepang and Hulu Langat
- Negeri Sembilan – Jelebu, Jempol and Tampin
- Johor – Segamat, Batu Pahat, Kluang, Mersing, Kota Tinggi, Johor Bahru, Kulai and Pontian
- Pahang – Cameron Highlands, Lipis, Raub, Bentong, Rompin, Pekan and Kuantan
- Kelantan – Tumpat, Pasir Mas, Kota Bharu, Bachok, Pasir Puteh, Machang and Tanah Merah
- Kuala Lumpur
Tourism in Terengganu will be affected by the monsoon season as tourists won’t be able to access offshore islands until March next year. This is due to the safety concerns as the sea can get pretty rough.
“The condition of strong winds and rough seas is dangerous to small crafts, recreational sea activities and sea sports,” as written on the official website.
Besides Terengganu, similar weather can be expected off the coast of Kelantan, Pahang and Johor.
Since floods happen every year during the monsoon season, netizens have urged the government to take more preventive measures.
“Now that there’s a forewarning from the meteorological department, let’s hope the federal and state government will take appropriate steps to minimise the risks and damages,” a concerned netizen wrote.
So guys, if you’re staying in one of the flood-prone areas listed above, you might want to start preparing for the potential flood to minimise loss. Spread the word and stay safe people!
