Floods: Kelantan MB's house inundated as situation worsens in the state


PETALING JAYA: The house of the Kelantan Mentri Besar has been flooded as the situation worsens in the state, but this has not stopped Datuk Mohd Nassuruddin Daud from carrying out his duties.

"The water level rose quite rapidly. Last night (Dec 26), my residence and the surrounding area of Kampung Meranti were also flooded.

"Thank God, this morning (Dec 27) I was still able to carry out my official duties to go to the office to chair the exco meeting in Kota Darul Naim," he said in a Facebook post.
