More Flooding

Once again, the monsoon rain is causing havoc and hardship to people of the east coast state of Kelantan. Hillside cutting and pollution of the rivers are proving costly. This has caused floods as with the trees gone, the ground is unable to retain rainwater forcing rivers to carry more water than they can handle.
Bare hills also result in soil erosion, causing mud and debris to make rivers shallower. A taskforce has been set up to review all development projects.
The school holidays could be extended if the flooding continues.
