KOTA BHARU (BERNAMA) – The flood situation in Kelantan is improving with only 122 victims from 39 families still at three flood relief centres, compared to 307 people from 123 families yesterday.

Meanwhile, Rantau Panjang Fire and Rescue Station chief Imran Ismail said the water in Sungai Golok at the assessment point in Rantau Panjang is still above the warning level at 8.42 metres (warning level is eight metres), but it is receding.

He attributed the situation to the fine weather, with no heavy rain, for the past two days.
