JOHOR BARU: The floods situation in Segamat has recovered fully with the last temporary relief centre (PPS) ceasing operations.

The state disaster management committee said the last two evacuees, who were earlier seeking shelter at one PPS in Segamat, have returned home.

“The affected evacuees are from 3,985 families.

“It is a significant improvement compared with 17,125 evacuees recorded in Batu Pahat and Segamat at 8am,” it said.
