EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS

Rising floodwaters in Malaysia force thousands to evacuate

At least 20,000 people have been displaced after severe flooding triggered by extreme rain events inundated multiple regions across Malaysia.

Extreme Rain Events dumped more than 640mm (two feet) of rain in less than 36 hours unleashing massive flooding across  eastern, northeastern and southern Malaysia .

In the eastern state of Pahang about 10,000  people fled their homes after floodwaters submerged vast areas across 4 districts.

Extreme rain and the rising tide caused the water level to rise 3.3 meters (11 feet) in Pahang early Tuesday, according to a senior police official.

In the southern state of Johor, about 10,000 residents were evacuated from six flooded towns and dozens of villages.

At least 1,000 others were forced to abandon their homes in the north-eastern state of Terengganu, according to local reports.

More rain is forecast across the affected areas, said the Malaysian Meteorological Department.
