The number of flood evacuees remained unchanged tonight from this evening with 260 people from 82 families still housed at the evacuation centre in Serian district near Kuching. Sarawak Civil Defence Department public relation officer Siti Huzaimah Ibrahim said as of 8pm today only the evacuation centre in Gedong community hall that was opened since last week, was still active. The water level in most residential areas around the evacuation centre had subsided slowly, she said. She expected the evacuation centre to be closed by noon tomorrow after a detailed evaluation is made by the district flood management committee members in the morning. Meanwhile she said the department today performed many activities to help clean up several areas in the aftermath of the flood, especially in the Kuching and Serian districts. – Bernama, February 27, 2016.]]>
