Floods: Fire and Rescue Department ready to help in Sri Muda

SHAH ALAM: The Fire and Rescue Department is ready to help in Sri Muda here and is on standby.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Norazam Khamis said when contacted on Saturday (Aug 20) that a team had been dispatched there from Shah Alam.

"A total of seven firefighters are on the scene. At the same time, two boats are being mobilised there along with six more firefighters," he said.

He added that current surveillance showed that water had risen to around one feet in depth.

Meanwhile, Shah Alam police said in a Whatsapp message to the media that there is some stagnant water in front of Dewan Kemuning Utama.

However vehicles are still able to pass through the road there and the cause of the rise of water is due to a stuck drain, and not due to floods.
