By 8 AM, 1,431 victims from 400 families were spread across 14 PPS in Kuala Nerus, Kuala Terengganu, Setiu, and Marang. This surge, up from 1,048 victims in 12 PPS, signifies a substantial rise.
Kuala Nerus hosts the most victims, 699 individuals from 189 families, while Kuala Terengganu shelters 574 victims across four PPS. Setiu maintains 26 affected individuals. Rain persists in various areas across Terengganu.
However, netizens are sharing their sympathies towards the residents in the area. The monsoon season typically hits these states rough. Students studying in Kuala Lumpur are concerned if they’re able to go back and visit their family members.
