We woke up in high spirits this morning since there had been no rain for the past 24 hours. xnuripilot left the house at 7 a.m. for his round of golf with his buddies at the Darulaman Golf And Country Club. I was quite sure the flood was getting better until xnuripilot got home at 10.30 a.m. with more pictures of the flood shown below. Contrary to my assumption, the flood has worsened. The places which were still accessible to us yesterday are now under water! We are now marooned!!
Part of the highway to Alor Setar.
The road leading to Taman Mahsuri. We passed through this road yeasterday at 9a.m.
This is taken at the Wang Tepus-Darulaman Golf And Country Club junction. The bundles on the left are not heaps of rubbish but clothes and belongings salvaged by the flood victims.
One of the kampungs submerged by the flood.
A closer look at the same kampung.
The road leading up to Wang Tepus. Yesterday, the water was further up the road. Now, it has spilled closer to our junction.
The entrance to Taman Mahsuri Fasa 2B.
The two guys in the water taking full advantage of the flood.....bathing and fishing !
The bridge connecting us to the surrounding areas. If the river gets higher than the bridge, then there won't be any more pictures for my blog!!!! We will be completely cut off from the outside world.
I am not able to take pictures of Jitra proper because there's no way of getting there from where we are.
