PASIR MAS: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin flew to Kelantan to visit flood evacuees taking shelter at a temporary relief centre.
The Royal Malaysian Air Force helicopter ferrying the Prime Minister landed at the SK Gual Tinggi field here from the Gong Kedak air base, Pasir Puteh.
On hand to welcome him were Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob and his deputy, Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah, as well as Kelantan police chief Datuk Shafien Mamat.
Muhyiddin was later given a 20-minute briefing on the flood situation by Pasir Mas district officer Nik Mohamed Noor Nik Ishak.
He then spent some time with 154 flood victims from 59 families, and presented them with aid.
About an hour later, Muhyiddin left for Terengganu to visit flood victims at SK Bukit Mentok, Kemaman.
Both Kelantan and Terengganu are currently facing floods from the north-east monsoon. — Bernama
