Serdang OCPD Asst Comm AA Anbalagan said a landslide occurred at Jalan Wawasan 3/9 at about 7.25pm, causing residents of seven houses to be evacuated and damaging four vehicles. No casualties were reported.

Selangor Fire and Rescue director Wan Md Razali Wan Ismail said the landslide covered a 50m-wide area.

Authorities are investigating the soil’s condition while Air Selangor has shut off water. It’s believed the continuous downpour triggered soil movement.

A 150mm sheet pile is installed as a temporary measure, with completion expected by Sunday.

Residents living nearby are advised not to visit the landslide site due to unstable soil conditions. The police will also monitor the area to ensure a smooth investigation process.
