JOHOR BARU: The flood situation in Johor improved slightly with 1,374 people in shelters at midday as compared to 1,395 people in the morning,

State Health, Environment, Education and Information Committee chairman Datuk Ayub Rahmat in a statement here said 103 evacuees from 22 families were still at four flood relief centres (FRCs) in Segamat; 1,239 victims from 347 families in eight FRCs in Mersing (1,395 people/ 376 families in the morning) and 31 people from seven families in one FRC in Kota Tinggi.

He said Sekolah Kebangsaan Punan in Kluang still could not reopen (for the afternoon session) because of the floodwaters which cut access to the school.

He added that Jalan Telok Arung in Mersing was still closed due to a landslide and advised motorists to use Jalan Tanjung Resang-Jalan Mersing or Endau-Jalan Air Papan as alternatives.
