Worst Floods in Decades Hit Malaysia

Worst Floods in Decades Hit Malaysia

Malaysia is battling some of the worst floods in decades along its east coast, which have killed at least five people.
More than 100,000 people have been forced from their homes, and Prime Minister Najib Razak has returned early from holiday in the US, the BBC reported.
Eastern states are often flooded during the monsoon season, but this time officials say heavier rain and stronger winds have made things worse.
In some areas, entire towns have been submerged. The images reinforce the belief of some Malaysians that the government has not been doing enough to prevent these annual floods, correspondents say.
