FLOODWATERS have yet to recede in four out of 11 areas under the Sepang Municipal Council jurisdiction that were flooded after a downpour on Wednesday afternoon (Oct 20).
The areas are Taman Dataran Abadi and RTB (Rancangan Tanah Belia) Labu Lanjut in Labu; as well as Kampung Sri Tanjong and Kota Warisan Cure and Care Vocational Centre in Dengkil.
More people continue to be evacuated from their homes to flood relief centres.
Sepang district officer Khairi Azali Ibrahim said as of 2pm Friday (Oct 22), 269 people from 65 families had been moved out from their homes to one of the three flood relief centres that were set up in line with the Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP).
He said all evacuees were tested for Covid-19 before they were sent to the relief centres.
“Those tested positive were sent to the Taman Gemilang community hall, and their close contacts who tested negative were sent to Sekolah Rendah Agama (SRA) Dengkil hall.
“Those who tested negative were sent to SRA Kampung Dato Ahmad Razali hall.
“However, all Covid-19 positive occupants were in the process of being relocated to Hospital Serdang and the Malaysia Agriculture Expo Park integrated quarantine and treatment centre in Serdang,” he said.
He said the close contacts of those who were found positive with Covid-19 would be allowed to return home if flood waters receded in their areas, and that they continue to quarantine themselves at home.
