KOTA BARU: The state capital and Pasir Mas district in Kelantan were hit by floods after Sungai Kelantan overflowed its banks, forcing more than 500 people to evacuate and causing a two-year-old toddler to be drowned here yesterday. 

The river burst its banks yesterday after three days of rain, flooding the town, which had not seen a major flood in the last three years, raising the water level to a metre high in some areas.
