SIBU, Jan 14  --  The flood victims housed at the Kampung Jeriah Community Hall Temporary Relief Centre (PPS) are expected to return to their homes tomorrow due to the receding water level.

According to a statement from the Sarawak Civil Defence Force (APM) operations control centre, the water level in the first affected location, Lot 482 Jeriah Barat 5 Kampung Seduan Jaya, has completely receded, while in the second location in Lot 462 in the same area, the water level is 30.48cm.

Nangka assemblyman Dr Annuar Rapaee who visited the PPS this evening hoped that all 44 flood victims from the five families could return to their homes tomorrow.

"Before that, we need to make sure their homes are safe to live in. If not, they have to be placed in a rented house temporarily," he told Bernama through his Facebook page.

The APM statement also reported that the water level had receded at Lorong Bahagia 9A, Lorong Bahagia Tengah 6, and Jalan Bahagia Phase 4 in Kampung Bahagia, Teku here and the roads are passable to all vehicles.

Meanwhile, in Kapit, water levels showed an increasing trend in the areas of John Ramba Longhouse, Kampung Bau, Kampung Muhibbah, SK Lepong Balleh as well as the boat jetties in Kapit and locals were advised to be vigilant.

In Matu, residents around SMK Matu, SK Orang Selair, SK Orang Kaya Sergunim, Kampung Jemoreng, Kampung Bertong, Kampung Sekaan Besar, Pekan Matu, Kampung Bawang, Kampung Sekaan Kecil, Kampung Tian were also asked to be vigilant after the water level rose following rain from yesterday afternoon until this morning.

"The situation at the location is still under control. However, the villagers should be aware of the unpredictable weather conditions and rising water levels if the rain continues until next Tuesday and it is likely that the water level will rise sharply,” according to the statement.

Also facing the possibility of floods due to rain and high tide is Kampung Boom, Oya in Dalat district, near here.
