KOTA KINABALU: More flood victims are being placed in six relief centres following the floods that hit several districts in the west coast of Sabah.
As of 4pm on Tuesday (Oct 6), there were 341 evacuees from 78 villages in the districts of Kota Belud (293), Tuaran (45) and Kota Kinabalu (3).
This was an increase from the earlier numbers released by the State Disaster Management Committee at noon on Tuesday, when there were 265 victims from 32 villages within the three districts.
Meanwhile, two other districts are affected by rising water but no relief centres have been activated there yet.
Penampang saw seven villages inundated while five villages in Beaufort also suffered from rising water levels.
However, weather seemed to be more favourable on Tuesday as most places on the west coast saw a cloudy day with no rain.
The floods are believed to have been triggered by the continuous downpour in the early hours of Monday (Oct 5).
