Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin flew into flood-ravaged Kelantan today and ordered the deployment of more helicopters, boats and land vehicles to reach and help the affected people.
Describing the floods as worse than anticipated, he said the air, water and land transportation assets currently deployed were inadequate to face the floods of such proportions.
"The National Security Council (NSC) will look into this. We are using seven helicopters… these may not be enough. The boats on the ground may not be enough. The logistics facilities must be stepped up," he told reporters after a visit to the flood relief centre at Sekolah Kebangsaan Pengkalan Chepa 1, Kota Bharu.
Muhyiddin was given a briefing on the flood situation in Kelantan at the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport in Pengkalan Chepa soon after he flew in to take a first-hand look at the intensity of the second wave of floods this year.
