JOHOR BARU: The number of evacuees at temporary flood relief centres (PPS) in the state continues to drop with only the Segamat district with people still seeking shelter at the centre. State Health and Environment committee chairman R. Vidyananthan said there were 77 people from 24 families at the three PPS in Segamat. “The last PPS in Tangkak at SK Durian Chondong was shut down at about 3pm on Saturday (Jan 15). The PPS at Kampung Bukit Senggir in Segamat was also closed on Saturday (Jan 15) at about 10am,” he said in a statement here. The three remaining PPS in Segamat were the Balairaya Gemerah 4 (Batu Badak), Sekolah Agama Semarah and Dewan Serbaguna Jalan Genuang PPS in Segamat. “The weather has also remained clear in all 10 districts the whole day as of 4pm,” he said. He added that only one road, Jalan Felda Bukit Aping (Jalan Kemuning 1) in Kota Tinggi was still closed due to a landslide. “One river, Sungai Bekok in Batu Pahat, is still recording a high alert reading of 16.43m while other rivers have reported safe water level figures,” he said.
