Hi everyone..It has been about 3 weeks since my last post..The weather is quite gloomy here in Terengganu and so is my life... As we all know.. it's now the monsoon season and the east coast of Malaysia especially, is experiencing heavy rains. The rain sometimes continues for days and it's really cold and windy here in Terengganu during the time of heavy downpour. Last week floods struck Terengganu after 4 days of continuous rains and forced evacuation of people in some districts especially those staying at the low lying areas.. I was on my way to Kuala Lumpur when the first wave of flood struck Terengganu early Friday morning. We saw the water rising somewhere near Dungun along the Jerangau - Jabor route and the road had to be closed for light vehicles. .
Unfortunately, the second wave of flood is expected anytime as it is reported that we will again experience heavy rain starting tomorrow. Just today, I read in NST on the CHOLERA outbreak here in Terengganu-another effect of flood during the monsoon season. So far, a death has been reported plus 4 confirmed cases and 98 suspected cases. The cholera outbreak is expected to worsen after the second wave of flood which is expected to take place soon. Today it's really dark outside and definitely the heavy rain is on it's way ... To those who are coming to Terengganu, my advice is to be aware of the cholera outbreak and be prepared for heavy rains!!!.. We should avoid consuming contaminated food or those which were not well prepared, avoid drinking unboiled water and stay away from DIRTY food stalls. Honestly, this is really not the time to visit Terengganu..
