Flash Flood hits Klang, Kuala Langat – 71 Evacuated

The situation is under control as of now and the flood water is starting to recede

SHAH ALAM – Two areas in Klang and Kuala Langat near here have been hit by flash floods following heavy rain for more than two hours since early this morning, Bernama reported.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department assistant director of operations, Hafisham Mohd Noor, said the affected areas are Jalan Pengkalan Kampung Nelayan, Telok Gong in Port Klang and Jalan Perepat, Telok Panglima Garang in Kuala Langat.

“The firefighters evacuated 71 people in both areas after receiving an emergency call about the floods at about 6 am and 7 am. They were evacuated to a temporary relief centre and some stayed with their relatives.

“Both areas were flooded up to kneel level due to the overflow of water from drains and the nearby river. However, the situation is now under control and the flood water is starting to recede,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Hafisham said a tree had fallen and damaged four vehicles in Jalan Samudera, Pulau Indah at 5.24 am and no victims had been reported to be involved in the incident.
