KOTA KINABALU: Relief workers in Sabahs east coast are trying to deliver food to some 350 boarders at a school cut off by floods in Kinabatangan.
Apart from food, SMK Pinangah was in urgent need of diesel to run the generators.
It was cut off after four wooden bridges and part of a road linking the school to Kuamut collapsed in the floods.
A total of 553 families from 17 kampungs in low-lying areas of Sungai Kinabatangan have been moved.
We have sent a boat with food supplies to the school today (Wednesday), but we dont know if the boat can make it due to currents, Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Moktar Radin said.
The water level at Sungai Kinabatangan was at 11.3m. The danger mark is 10m.
There were no reports of casualties although hundreds of houses had been submerged.
