Heavy seasonal rain sparks severe flooding

Monsoonal rain has caused severe flooding in parts of Malaysia and Thailand
claiming two dozen lives, with 250,000 people evacuated or seeking higher
ground.

Johnny Tan 9M8DB of the Malaysian Amateur Radio Transmitters' Society (MARTS)
says: "The flooding continues and some photos illustrate the severity of
the floods in the various areas in West Malaysia.

"The depth of floodwaters can be clearly seen by a submerged petrol service
station, trapped cars and barely visible house roof tops."

Johnny 9M8DB says emcomm operators are still using 7.110 MHz, the designated

centre-of-activity emergency frequency, and ask that it be kept clear.

"The emergency health and welfare traffic stations run by the emcomm team
are in Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan, Kemaman and Bachok, using NVIS propagation
that is best suited for the terrain.

"The situation has not eased in Malaysia, with rescue and recovery efforts
continuing,"he reports.

Meanwhile in Thailand, disaster zones have been declared in some southern
provinces affected by the big flood.
