Brunei: Severe bad weather warning ahead by meteorological agency

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Oct. 23 (Xinhua): Brunei is experiencing unsettled weather conditions with occasional gusty showers associated with the development of cyclonic systems, such as tropical storms and typhoons, the country's meteorological agency said.

The BDMD forecast unsettled weather conditions to continue until this weekend. Heavy showers with occasional strong winds are expected with wind gust up to 50 km per hour.

People are advised to take note of the risk of flash floods, especially in low lying and flood-prone areas during heavy showers or thunder showers, as well as the risk of falling trees during gusty winds.

Meanwhile, Brunei reported no new confirmed cases of Covid-19 on Friday, leaving its total tally unchanged at 148.

The health ministry said that no more recoveries were recorded, with the total number remaining at 143. There are still two active cases being treated in the National Isolation Center, who were recorded on Oct 14 and 22.
