104 Penang folks remain at flood relief centres

GEORGE TOWN: Some 104 people affected by Friday's massive flash floods are still staying in four flood relief centres currently operating the state.

According to the Fire and Rescue Department, 31 people are being housed in the southwest district, Seberang Prai Utara (17 people) and Seberang Prai Tengah (56 people) as of 11pm yesterday.

The flood relief centres in the northeast district and Seberang Prai Selatan have since closed.

Tens of thousands of people woke up to a wet Friday which crippled many parts of Penang.

The flash floods also claimed the life of 30-year-old factory worker Noor Afidah Yahunas, who was reported missing after she fell from her motorcycle into a culvert in Paya Terubong, while on her way back from work.

Intense heavy downfall has contributed to the flash floods according the state government.
