(Video) Heavy Rain Causes Flash Floods At Pasar Payang

Published

on

KUALA TERENGGANU, Dec 3  — Heavy rain for about six hours since 6 pm yesterday caused flash floods in several locations in Terengganu last night.

From videos shared by netizens on Facebook, a few tourist locations, such as Dataran Syahbandar, Pasar Payang, and Kampung Cina were also affected, with the roads in the area closed to light vehicles.

Residents in the affected areas were also seen busy helping one another to move their vehicles to higher ground, but many of the traders did not have enough time to move their wares due to the fast-rising water.

According to the Secretariat for the Terengganu Disaster Management Committee, as of 7 am today, 439 victims from 124 families had been evacuated to nine relief centers, which was less than 24 hours after the closure of the last relief center for the second wave of flood in the state.

The flood today affected the districts of Kuala Terengganu, Kuala Nerus, Marang, and Kemaman, with the evacuation process in a few other districts.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian National News Agency  (Bernama) part-time reporter, Kamaliza Kamaruddin, 39, said the water in her two-story house rose to knee-high, but the family did not evacuate as they moved upstairs.

“We had time to move only some of the electrical appliances upstairs. This is the third flash floods since we moved to this residential area at Jalan Pusara here,” she said, adding that the two previous occasions were in 2016 and 2018.

However, this time, the floodwater took longer to recede, she said.

Bernama photographer Mohd Khairul Fikiri Osman, 34, was also affected by the floods when water began entering his house at 9.30 pm and three hours later, he decided to move out and checked into a hotel with his wife and two children.

“I was able to move the refrigerator to a higher level but had to leave others when water started to fill the house. What matters most is my family’s safety,” he said.

As of 7.30 am today, the flood water is beginning to recede, though, in some areas in the state, it is reported to be drizzling.

Biden Ends Travel Ban On Muslim Majority Countries

Published

on

WASHINGTON Jan 21 – US President Joe Biden on Wednesday ended his predecessor’s travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, which the new administration called “discriminatory.”

Biden signed the executive order in the Oval Office after taking the oath to become the country’s 46th president, Anadolu Agency reported.

In the proclamation, he said the US “was built on a foundation of religious freedom and tolerance, a principle enshrined” in the country’s constitution.

Trump introduced the ban in March 2017 with an executive order followed by proclamations that introduced vetting capabilities and processes, citing attempted entries of “terrorists” or “public safety threats,” in a move to prevent individuals from entering the US from Muslim countries and then several other African nations.  These countries include Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Sudan.

“Our national security will be enhanced by revoking the Executive Order and Proclamations,” said Biden, ordering all American embassies and consulates to resume visa processing in a manner consistent with the move.

The restrictions were “rooted in religious animus, and xenophobia,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at a press briefing.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) welcomed the move, calling it “an important first step toward undoing the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policies of the previous administration.”

“It is an important fulfilment of a campaign pledge to the Muslim community and its allies,” said Nihad Awad, head of the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organisation.
