Parts of Malaysia have been experiencing a significant amount of heavy rain for the past month, and it looks like this weather is even contributing to rising tides, causing even more floods!

According to The Star, Malaysia’s National Disaster Control Centre has just issued a warning for residents living near coastal areas across Malaysia as flash floods caused by high tides could happen.

Between 10th and 12th October, a surge in tidal waves as high as 4.8 to 4.9 metres is expected to cause widespread floods.

Earlier last week, a warning was issued, stating that a number of coastal areas in Selangor would be facing high tides and heavy rains leading to floods from September to November this year, with the main affected areas being Klang, Kuala Langat, Sepang, Kuala Selangor, and Sabak Bernam.

Just yesterday (9th October) at around 2pm, Klang experienced yet another round of floods that affected the city’s Little India district, affecting main roads, shops, and even a nearby school while classes were still ongoing.
