JOHOR BARU: The number of flood evacuees in Johor dropped to 4,736 as at 8am Saturday after 459 people were allowed to return to their homes overnight.

The state government official portal, www.johordt.gov.my, reported that the remaining evacuees were being accommodated at 19 relief centres in the districts of Batu Pahat, Segamat, Muar and Ledang.

Batu Pahat has the most number of evacuees, at 4,140, followed by Segamat (285), Muar (276) and Ledang (35).

Jalan Pogoh Tekam Section 1-Section 3 (from Chodan to Tekam) in Segamat remains closed to all vehicles because a one kilometre stretch is under a metre of floodwaters.
