SHAH ALAM – Police have deployed a post-flood rescue team to Janda Baik, Pahang to help those affected by the natural disaster on Wednesday.

The aid mission focused on cleaning work in Kampung Sum-Sum, Kampung Sungai Lampin, Kampung Sungai Chemperoh, teachers’ quarters at the Ar Raudhah Nabawiyyah Religious Secondary School, Surau At-Taqwa and several other areas around Janda Baik.

The post-flood relief mission in the flood-affected areas was led by Pahang police chief Commissioner Datuk Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf.

“The Pahang police chief expressed his highest appreciation and gratitude to all officers and members of the post-flood relief mission,” Pahang police posted on its official Facebook account.

A total of 173 people were deployed to help with the mission, including senior and junior officers from the Cheras General Operations Force (GOF), Kuantan’s GOF from Battalion 7 Bukit Galing Camp and the Federal Reserve Force led by its Commander Senior Assistant Commissioner Mohd Said bin Ibrahim.

The effort was also attended by 40 police officers from the Bentong District Police Headquarters.

On Wednesday, continuous heavy rain from 3am had caused the areas in Janda Baik to be hit by flash floods.

The flood affected more than 140 houses, but no casualties were recorded.
