Gua Musang Temporary Bridge Closed Again

GUA MUSANG, May 19 (Bernama) -- The temporary bridge in Kampung Pulau Setelu that was opened to the public yesterday morning has to be closed again due to overflow from Sungai Nenggiri since 5am today.

Gua Musang Civil Defence Force officer Mohd Yusalmi Mohd Yusoff said the bridge that was still under repair was submerged in two metres and buried under wooden debris washed away by the river following heavy rain since 4pm yesterday.

"Although the water level has dropped this evening, it will take a while before water levels fully recover to normal. Thus, the people need to be patient," he told reporters when observing the situation at the bridge today.....
