TEMPORARY RELIEF CENTRE HOUSING KAMPUNG SUNGAI TIRAM FLOOD VICTIMS CLOSED

JOHOR BAHRU, The temporary evacuation centre at Dewan Sungai Tiram housing residents of Kampung Sungai Tiram, which was hit by flash floods yesterday, has been closed as of 5 pm today.

The Johor Bahru District Disaster Management Committee said that this was after the water level in the area subsided at 7 am today.

As such, it said all 74 victims from 22 families residing in Jalan Batu 10 and Jalan Mak Piah were allowed to return home.

Yesterday, a downpour at about 4 pm as well as piles of wood and rubbish at a nearby river obstructed water flow, causing the river to overflow and inundating the area.
