Dr M offers solution to flood woes


KUALA LUMPUR: The first floor of buildings and homes should be raised above floodwaters to reduce damage from the recurring disaster, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Dr Mahathir said the first floor – lobby or entrance hall – of a building should be raised to about 3.6m or more above the level of the street with concrete walls surrounding the space below the first floor extending down to surround the car park below the building.
