The public is well aware of the floods that are now hitting the East Coast states.

Although the weather has improved, some areas in Hulu Terengganu are still badly affected due to damaged roads and bridges.

That is what happened to the people of Kampung Belukar Bukit when the main bridge to the village was completely damaged.

Worse, communication lines, electricity and water supply were also affected.

At the same time, people were worried for their family and friends as they were separated from one another.

Among them is a girl who was worried about her family being stranded.

Bravery And Family Love

In a viral video on Facebook, the girl – who had lost contact with her family for 2 days -was determined to meet her mom.

That determination gave her the strength and courage to cross the bridge – by treading on electrical cables strewn across the river.

At the same time, she held on to a road divider to avoid falling into the raging current below.

Netizens were worried seeing the girl’s actions, which were considered dangerous because the trampled electrical cable had a fairly high voltage.

Others said it should be safe as the electricity supply would have been cut off by the TNB.

Many wish the girl and her family well.

At the same time, netizens also hope that others would not imitate the daring act due to the dangers.

Aid On The Way

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob is scheduled to visit Kelantan and Terengganu today following the floods that hit the two states.

During the visit, he is expected to announce the assistance that will be channelled to the victims affected by the disaster.
