Kuching hit by massive floods

Here we are talking about the beautiful weather here in Kuala Lumpur while over in East Malaysia, Kuching to be exact, we see floods after 12 hours of continuous rain. Many parts of Kuching in Sarawak are at a standstill today.

From The Star:

The affected areas include Batu Kawah, Batu Lintang, Sungai Maong, Iris Garden and Satok. Many roads are impassable to small vehicles.

At the flyover from the Kuching international airport, motorists reported that all four lanes heading towards the city are jammed.

At least one school in Batu Lintang is believed to have closed for the day due to flood waters.

It is learnt that two students from a school in Batu Lintang are missing due to the floods. A search for the students is now being conducted.
