Disaster management committees in Sabah, Labuan to be activated, says Nadma

KUALA LUMPUR: The National Disaster Management Agency (Nadma) has requested disaster management committees at the state and district levels to be activated to increase the level of preparedness to face potential flooding in Sabah and Labuan.

This follows a yellow-level weather alert issued by the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) on Sunday (Sept 25) on continuous rain in several locations in Sabah and Labuan until Monday (Sept 26).

According to Nadma, the disaster management committees must ensure that all flood relief centres are equipped with basic needs.

Control posts at the affected areas are also requested to have sufficient operational assets in good condition and ready for use.

"Nadma's National Disaster Command Centre (NDCC) will constantly monitor the technical parameters of the situation in collaboration with various technical agencies," read the post on Nadma's Facebook on Sunday.

MetMalaysia earlier announced that the areas affected in Sabah are the inland (Kuala Penyu and Beaufort), on the West Coast (Papar, Putatan, Penampang, Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran and Kota Belud) and Kudat. - Bernama
