AID has come in for flood victims in Batu Ferringhi, Penang, to help them cushion the impact of the natural disaster.

Some 32 families received dry rations in the form of rice, canned food and other basic items worth RM100 as well as RM200 in cash from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) Penang.

Teluk Bahang assemblyman Zolkifly Md Lazim, who represented Penang Bersatu chairman Datuk Shabudin Yahaya, said a total of 56 families received the aid.

“There are 32 families here in the Batu Ferringhi area, while the others live around Tanjung Bungah.

“We will hand out the remaining rations to the other families later.

“This is a little aid to help them get by after the disaster, ” he said when met at Masjid Al Rahman in Batu Ferringhi recently.

On June 29, a storm in the northern coast of Penang island caused flash floods in various parts of Tanjung Bungah after a two-hour downpour.

The heavy rain from 8am to 10am caused flash floods in villages in Batu Ferringhi, Tanjung Bungah and Tanjung Tokong.
