“JMG and PWD have been asked to coordinate landslide reporting so that it is more comprehensive and also involved slope areas under the supervision of local authorities,” said NADMA in a statement on Wednesday (December 29th). 

The agency also said the Selangor State Disaster Management Committee (JPBN) and the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) were instructed to identify the best solution to accommodate residents who need to vacate their houses due to landslides where the building structure is unsafe to live in. 

Ahh, that’s so scary! Please be safe everyone, especially if you live in a flood-prone area.
