PETALING JAYA: The collapse of Highland Towers in Ulu Klang, Selangor in December 1993 is one of the most tragic in the country’s history of landslides.

The landslide was triggered by heavy monsoon rain and aggravated by land clearing, improper drainage of water and a poorly constructed retaining wall.
