Alor Setar flood - airport remains closed

The Sultan Abdul Halim Air­­­­port in Alor Setar remains closed because the runways are flooded, and for now, only helicopter services are available in Kedah. Affected passengers have the option to reschedule flights or make arrangements to fly from either Penang or Langkawi.

Water, water everywhere: The Kepala Batas Airport remains closed until further notice as the runway is flooded. But all is not lost. Look how beautiful the birds are! Food supply could be overflowing for them.

Meanwhile Kangar is still under water and almost the entire town remains submerged with the number of evacuees continuing to rise.

Despite the rainfall having eased since Tuesday, the situation is still unmanageable with 90% of the state capital inundated.
