The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) has issued orange (severe-level continuous rain warning) and yellow alerts (alert-level continuous heavy rain warning) for several areas in Sarawak, Sabah, Pahang and Johor until Feb 1.

In a statement issued via the National Disaster Management Agency’s (Nadma) National Disaster Command Centre (NDCC) at 1.30pm today, MetMalaysia informed that severe-level continuous rain is forecast in Kuching, Serian, Samarahan, Sibu, Selangau, Mukah, Daro, Matu and Dalat di Sarawak as well as Sandakan, Telupid, Beluran and Kudat in Sabah.
