Tropical storm Nock-Ten causes havoc

The Star reported of storms killing over 50 in the Philippines and S. Korea, rain expected here. Nock-Ten named after a Laotian bird, is expected to cause more damage in the northern areas of Luzon island while bringing heavy rain to Manila. At least 25 people died and as many as 31 others went missing as a slow-moving tropical storm dumped enormous amounts of rain across the Philippines main island.

However in Malaysia, Nock-Ten is expected to bring rain and strong winds to northern Sabah, Pahang and Selangor over the next two days. The MET assured the public no need to panic over the tropical storm as Malaysia would only experience its indirect effects.
