Baling district Civil Defence officer Rasidah Kassim said the number of victims was being updated and the PPS involved were SK Iboi, SK Syed Sheh and SMK Jera.

"The floods have so far affected four villages, namely Kampung Iboi and Kampung Tanjung Luas in Kupang sub-district as well as Kampung Sedim and Kampung Jernang in Bakai sub-district," he said in a statement Monday night (July 4).
