Kedah and Perlis are facing their worst floods in 30 years, with more than 16,000 people relocated to 113 evacuation centres in both States since last Saturday.
Two-thirds of Perlis and most of northern Kedah have been inundated by non-stop rain over a three-day period since last Friday.
The floods have destroyed an estimated 25,000ha of padi fields in Muda Agricultural Development Authority (Mada) areas in Kedah and Perlis and non-Mada areas. Losses are estimated at over RM81 million.
