PETALING JAYA: A heroic rescue and relief effort to help flood victims in seven states was ramped up further as the number of evacuees in one of Malaysia’s worst flooding incidents passed the 100,000 mark.

More resources including helicopters and boats have been mobilised, with the Armed Forces setting up a 24-hour flood aid collection centre at the Subang Air Force base. The Reserve Army has been deployed to help send supplies of fresh water to victims in Pahang and Terengganu.
