MIRI: Dense clouds are building up in the South China Sea and waters off Philippines north of Borneo Island, according to the latest satellite images Saturday (Nov 2) morning.

Sarawak is gearing for heavy rains if winds blow these clouds in its direction.

Miri Fire and Rescue Department chief Supt Law Poh Kiong shared the latest satellite images obtained by the Meteorological Department in Miri Bomba chat groups.

“The latest satellite images are taken this morning by the meteorological authorities.

“From the images, the outlook for the weather is not good, ” he said, adding that Bomba has already put preparations in place to face a possible watery deluge.

In Miri and other parts of northern Sarawak, there was heavy rain in the predawn hours today (Nov 2).

The rain lasted from around midnight to about 6am.

Sarawakians are bracing for the arrival of the annual “landas” season, which is expected to bring heavy rain until March next year.

The landas in Sarawak is the equivalent of the monsoons that lash the east coast peninsular states of Terengganu and Kelantan every year-end.
