Ministry issues flood warning

Marooned: A flash flood that inundated Segambut last week after heavy rain in Kuala Lumpur.

PETALING JAYA: Communities in low-lying areas and coastal parts of the country are urged to be alert during the transitional phase of the monsoon, which is bringing heavy rainfall and with it risks of flash floods and structural damage.

The transition phase, which started late September and will last until early next month, puts the coastal areas at risk especially if continuous heavy rainfall coincided with the high tide, said the Water, Land and Natural Resources Ministry.
