Monsoon Season of Floods

This time of the year brings heavy rains and floods. Many states are now affected and deaths have been reported. The east coast states of Kelantan and Terengganu and the state of Johore in the south, are badly affected. It doesn't look like people in the flood affected areas will get any respite, with more rain forecast, floodwaters that remain at high levels in some areas, and a high tide phenomenon forecast for Friday that is expected to make things worse.
