PUTRAJAYA: The government will channel immediate assistance to 160 families affected by flash floods in Janda Baik, Pahang, to help the victims undertake cleaning and repair works, says Chief Secretary to the Government Zuki Ali.

Zuki went to the flood-hit location today to extend assistance of RM1,000 to each family.

“I have also instructed all agencies involved in disaster management to provide a holistic solution related to this disaster, including short, medium and long-term plans,” he said on Facebook.

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, through his Facebook page today, said Zuki would represent him to deliver emergency aid from the government as he is currently in the US to attend the Asean-US Special Summit in Washington.

Continuous heavy rain since 3am on Wednesday caused flash floods and landslides in Janda Baik, affecting more than 140 houses in Kampung Sum-Sum, Kampung Lampin, Kampung Cheringin and Kampung Pulau Santap. - FMT
