Dry, muddy, very windy: Malaysian weather goes extreme in 2014

Malaysian weather in 2014 (from left): The low water level in the Sg Selangor dam near Kuala Kubu Baru in September; a car that had been swept by flood waters against the wall of a house in Ringlet, Cameron Highlands; a mini-tornado in Pendang, Kedah, captured on video.

Longer droughts, flashier floods, muddier landslides, and tornadoes! We take a look at some of the year’s weather extremes from around Malaysia.

It’s not as if we didn’t have prior warning. Climate change scientists have been giving us environmental doomsday stories for years – Hollywood even turned some of them into blockbuster movies. Still, whether or not the more extreme weather we've been experiencing can be connected to the effects of climate change remains inconclusive.
