PERLIS's FLOOD - Live Update..

I received requests from fellow friends outside Perlis to update the flood situation in Perlis...Well, I will try to.

Date: 2nd November, 2010.
Time: 12.20am
This is the situation at Jalan Jubli Emas, near Taman Kangar.. The water from the Tasoh Dam was released earlier at 10.30pm, Monday 1st November 2010.

12.30am: SK Seri Indra, SMK Syed Hassan and SM Teknik Kangar will be closed tomorrow..
1.00am: Water being released from the Tasoh Dam again... Should reached Kangar in the early morning.
1.15am: Water level in SMK Derma going up ...
The hostel guys just cannot sleep tonight..
1.30am: I should have some sleep myself... Just for a moment.
1.35am:  Cannot sleep lol... 
 Water level rising again....
1.36am: Going out again to town....
2.10am: Not much difference, but water is slowly rising..
Kangar Main Road, Jalan Jubli Emas at 2.00am

2.15am: The Menteri Besar of Perlis made it clear why the water at the Timah Tasoh Dam was released again at 1.00am just now. The water level was at 30.45meters, which was 1.25 meters above the danger zone. The dam could only hold a maximum level of 29.2 meters.. So, that explains why... He also mentioned that this year's flood might be worse than the 2005 flood....
5.45am:  It rained all the while. There's nothing I can do..
6.15am: Water is up, rising. Raining quite heavily.. I have to go out on foot now..... Will be reporting later..
6.40am: Confirmed!! I'm on an island already... I can only wade through the waters on foot. What's worst is that it's still raining..., and it's quite heavy.
6.50am: Going out to town on foot. Will be back a little bit late.., about an hour from now..
7.15am: Sure enough, the level of water has risen drastically..

7.20am: In school, SMK Derma to see how things are going on..


7.30am: Send back all the students who braved their way to school this morning... Several teachers came to school too......


7.45am: Took photos of the school surroundings...
 
8.15am: Took some pictures in town area which is accessible by foot...


8.30am: Jalan Sekolah Derma, infront of SMK Syed Hassan and SK Seri Indra is 1 meter deep... It was announced on air (Radio Kangar) a few minutes ago....
9.00am: More water from dam is being released.. Rivers supplying water to the dam at Timah Tasoh are all full !!! They have to release more water from the dam...
9.40am: True to the fact, the water level keeps on  rising in Kangar... And it's still raining..

Everything's down in Perlis at the moment.. Very bad situation. Local radio had to be temporary on air at a different place..

hi DESS, is it true that the water released from Timah Tasoh causes kuala perlis to flood as well?

DESS said...

As far as I know, Kuala Perlis has never been flooded before. If there is any, it's just a flash flood after a heavy downpour...
