Landslides were reported along KM35 of the Penampang-Tambunan trunk road and KM6.1 of the Tamparuli-Kiulu road.
KOTA KINABALU: Continuous heavy rain over the past several days has caused landslides along two key trunk roads, disrupting traffic into the interior of Sabah.
The rains also caused flash floods in several low-lying areas around the state capital including Menggatal and parts of the south-western Beaufort district.
The Public Works Department had dispatched road maintenance crews to clear the tonnes of earth blocking both roads.
Kiulu State Assemblyman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai said the landslide occurred at about 11.30pm on Tuesday.
He said the landslide had stranded some 40,000 people living in Kiulu many of whom commute to the city daily to work.
Joniston said another landslide also buried a house in Kiulu but there were no casualties as the occupants had got out of the structure in time.
