Trauma of floods will remain long in the memory of victims

KEPALA BATAS: The floods may have subsided but for two housewives, it will forever be at the back of their minds.

Che Norah Othman, 52, from Kampung Chegar recalled that she was asleep when the waters awoke her family and her last Sunday.

"It was an eerie feeling to have waters move rapidly to our waist level. We needed to waddle our way out. It will take a awhile to blank such a feeling as it came when we were asleep," said Che Norah.

She said the flood destroyed her electrical items and furniture and left a big mess to clear.

Housewife Nur Izzati Mohd Hata, 24, said she had to carry her nine-month old infant son to safety after being awoken by his cries.

"Our electrical items, food items and infant formula were also destroyed," she said.

She was shocked to see water flowing into her home, and though the floods have subsided she wakes up nightly fearing the house might be flooded.

For newlyweds – Nurul Hafizah Ramli and her husband Mohd Nasieruddin, this flood will always bring nasty memories.

"I lost my engagement ring during the chaos which followed when her house was inundated by floods. Some of the gifts given to us was also destroyed," said Nurul, a school teacher.

The three women were among the recipients of theSun's Cares Fund's flood relief mission.
