ALOR SETAR: Firemen have rescued 16 people from three families in Kampung Kotan, Pokok Sena, near here, who were trapped in a flood that occurred after heavy rain this evening.

Kedah fire and rescue department assistant director Mohamadul Ehsan Mohd Zain said a call was received that the 16 people were trapped in the flood at 5.34pm.

“A team of firemen from the Pokok Sena and Alor Setar stations were sent to the location in a fire engine and a boat.

“The occupants of three houses were all trapped in their homes. A boat was used to evacuate the victims, who were on the top floor of their homes,” he said in a statement tonight.

Ehsan said the victims comprised six men, five women, three boys and two girls. They were evacuated to the homes of relatives living nearby.

A Kedah civil defence force spokesman said a flood relief centre would be opened if the water did not recede, and the fire department said it was monitoring the situation. - FMT
