MIRI: Miri City Council (MCC) will take immediate actions to clear any blockage at the main water-discharge outlets at a number of low-lying areas.

These places include around Jalan Sealine, Jalan Pantai at Lutong, Senadin and Tudan. Also included are those clogged drains caused by rubbish dump as evidenced by these areas getting flooded following non-stop heavy rains today.

This was revealed by mayor Adam Yii in a statement after he visited the areas affected by the flash floods at the areas.

Areas such as Jalan Sealine, Jalan Pantai at Lutong, Senadin and Tudan were flooded due to heavy downpour and coupled with high rise of water level along the seafront during high tide.

The weather forecast expects isolated heavy downfalls and thunderstorms for the next few days in Miri. As such Yii reminded those residents and shopkeepers at Jalan Pantai Lutong, former Shell Airstrip area, Jalan Batu Satu, Tudan and Senadin areas especially at the low-lying areas to be constantly on alert and take precautionary measures to protect their properties.

During the visit, Yii was accompanied by Zone 6 Bomba chief Supt Law Poh Kiong, MCC’s secretary Morshidi Fredrick and Mohd Zaidi, the head of Public Relations Section as well as officials from the council’s Engineering Department.

Yii also urged everyone to stay safe and observe safety precaution when using electricity appliances and so forth.  In cases that they need assistance they can call emergency hotline 999 or Bomba at 420991 or 422973.
