"The PPS at Dewan Mini Mesapol, Sipitang is still open although 24 victims from eight families have returned home," it said.

The secretariat said 13 victims from four families were still housed at the Dewan Mini Mesapol PPS as their houses were still flooded.

Forty areas in Kota Belud and 13 areas in Sipitang were hit by floods after continuous rain caused rivers to burst their banks and flood nearby villages. - Bernama
