Minor flooding reported in Kuala Selangor due to high tide



KLANG: Of Selangor’s five main shorelines, only Kuala Selangor experienced a little flooding during the high tide phenomenon on Saturday morning (Oct 17).

Selangor Disaster Management Unit operations officer Muhammad Izzat Haziq Mohd Nazir said the water level at Port Klang was 5.7m at 6.11am.

He added there was some flooding and small mishaps in Kuala Selangor, while Kuala Langat, Sepang, Klang and Sabak Bernam did not record any untoward incidents.

“Bund and river fort erosion occurred at Kg Sungai Janggut in Jeram, Kuala Selangor and sea water also flooded two houses in the area,” he said.

He added that an evacuation centre had been prepared and kept on stand-by at SK Tambak Jawa in the event there was a need to move residents.

“Other areas in Kuala Selangor only saw very little flooding when sea water flowed out of bunds and forts. The bunds at the seafront were all in a good and stable condition,” said Muhammad.

He added the other four Selangor shorelines only saw a little flooding, which quickly receded, and that all beachfront bunds in the four locations were also in good and stable condition.
