Flash Floods Forecast For Monsoon Transition
KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 – Flash floods, thunder storms and strong winds are forecast for the monsoon transition period which is expected to start tomorrow and go on until early May. The Malaysian Meteorological Department’s Corporate and Commercial Services director Dr. Mohd Hisham Mohd Anip said Peninsular Malaysia’s west coast states, Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang would all be affected by the change in wind patterns.
The quantity of rainfall produced during this period would be between 150 and 250 milimetre per month, depending on the amount of rain in a given area, he told Bernama when contacted here today. On a separate note, he said the Selangor Water Management Board (LUAS) had requested the department to carry out cloud seeding over the dams for three days in a row starting today. The cost of the procedure would be solely borne by LUAS, he added. Mohd Hisham added that the last cloud seeding by the department was on March 21 in various areas including Melaka, Negeri Sembilan and Johor at the government’s expense.
