SHAH ALAM: The high tide phenomenon is expected to recur over coastal areas in Selangor for five days beginning Monday with sea water levels projected to reach up to 5.6m.

The Selangor State Disaster Management Unit said in a statement yesterday that the risk of floods could also increase in the areas in the event of heavy rain and strong winds during that period.

“People living in high-risk areas such as Klang, Kuala Langat, Sepang, Kuala Selangor and Sabak Bernam are urged to adhere to the instructions of the local authorities and be ready to be evacuated to the nearby relief centres which will be opened at 2pm tomorrow,” the statement said.

Last month, several states including Selangor and Perak were hit by floods due to the high tide phenomenon. — Bernama
