Stay away from east coast beaches, public warned

KUALA NERUS: Members of the public are reminded to stay away from beaches and not to turn the high-tide phenomenon that hit most of the coastal areas in the state into a water carnival.

Big waves could occur unexpectedly and threaten public safety, said Kuala Terengganu OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Md Din.

He said during the monsoon season, the waters off Terengganu, Pahang and Kelantan would experience rough seas that could pose a danger to beach activities.

“However, in the districts of Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Nerus, there are many beaches that are frequented by people from outside Terenggganu as they may not know that being by the seaside at this time is very dangerous.

“The local authorities have put up warning signs reminding the public against bathing and swimming in the sea, ” he told reporters when inspecting areas affected by the high-tide phenomenon yesterday.
