Floods in the state of Kelantan forced the evacuation of 440 people in Rantau Panjang when water from the Golok river overflowed. Rantau Panjang, Malaysia. 21/12/09. The areas affected are those in the low-lying parts near the river with no major roads closed to motorists and no fatalities have been reported so far. Children were also seen playing in a ‘sampan’ (a small boat) as well as playing ball games. A district flood operations spokesman said the evacuees were taking shelter at Sekolah Kebangsaan Gual Tinggi and the Rantau Panjang railway station. The river in Rantau Panjang currently measures 10 metres above the danger level. Heavy rain continued to fall in the state, especially in rural areas, making this the fourth flooding since the first wave hit Kelantan end of November.
