The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) has issued a weather warning, as heavy rains are expected to happen in four states of the Peninsula as well as several areas in Sabah.
They predicted heavy rainfall for:
- Pahang (Kuantan, Pekan, Rompin, Lipis, Jerantut, Temerloh, Maran and Bera)
- Johor (Segamat, Kluang, Mersing, Kulai, Kota Tinggi, Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat and Pontian)
- Sabah (Tuaran, Ranau, Kota Belud, Telupid, Beluran, Sandakan and Kudat)
It’s reported that the annual monsoon season in Malaysia starts from November up to March.
MET Malaysia predicts that up to four to six episodes of significant heavy rain could happen throughout this monsoon season.
They expect that the continuous heavy rain for several days may cause flooding at low lying and flood prone areas especially if the heavy downpour coincides with the high tide phenomenon and storms.
Recently, more than 7,000 people in Malaysia’s east coast states of Kelantan and Terengganu were affected by the flood caused by the annual monsoon season.
Meanwhile, the Royal Malaysian Police PDRM has reminded the public, especially those in flood prone areas to stay away from nearby beaches as the strong and high waves could endanger their safety.
They have also closed the route in both directions on Seberang Takir Beach or better known as Miami Beach in Terengganu due to the high tide phenomenon.
