High tide ends brief respite in Sarawak


Broken Earth: A section of road at the Puncak Borneo area destroyed by heavy rain. The road, about 40km from Kuching, leads to Kampung Abang.

KUCHING: There was a brief respite for flood evacuees in the state after the rain stopped at around noon, allowing the closure of three relief centres.

However, when high tide came at 4pm yesterday, the waters rose again, causing the number of evacuees to climb to 5,178 — the highest since shelters opened on Sunday evening.
