Banjir alert!

While I was writing the last post, little did I know that the incessant rain has resulted in flooding . In fact, bad flooding in  Malaysia, to the point that the army has been mobilised for relief work.

The following places are affected: Melaka, various parts of Johor including Segamat, Kluang and Labis, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang and Sabah.

KTM services have also been affected (I recall getting caught once whilst taking the train during a flood – it was no fun). There is definitely going to be an impact on travel during this Lunar New Year festive season.

Worse than that, there will be people spending this holiday period in relief shelters instead of their homes.

By the way, the MET forecast says that it will continue to rain in Johor throughout this week. Ditto in Singapore.
