The Worst Is Over!

. Late yesterday evening, xnuripilot and I decided to check on the flood situation.


The sky was bright and clear along this Wang Tepus road. The road was still flooded but there was a lot of improvement.





The highway to Alor Setar was still closed to traffic.







The road to Taman Mahsuri was still under water.





The road leading to Jitra town was still under about a foot of water. This was as far as we could go yesterday evening.





There was a huge jam on our way home.








The weather was superb this morning so I persuaded xnuripilot to take me on a tour inspection of  Jitra town after his round of golf. We left the house at about 11a.m. and below are scenes I managed to capture as we drove along.
                                                                                 






Father and child and fishing net.











We passed this river on our way to Jitra town. The level was still dangerously high and the current was strong. 










Even these buffaloes decided they've had enough of wallowing in the murky flood water. 












I've always been fascinated by these Asoka trees lining the whole length of the padi mill. They looked even more spectacular surrounded by water!











Most of the shops were still closed including Secret Recipe and Dr. Rozmey's spa at the back of it.










Petronas station in Jitra town was still in bad shape.













Taman Ehsan still half-submerged.











Sekolah Menengah Jitra (SMJ) 




The row of shops in Pekan Jitra 2. Almost back to normal. 




My cousin's house in Taman Mahsuri Permai. 




The river behind Taman Suasana. 




The road leading to the lake at Darulaman Theme Park is now visible again.

  1. Alhamdulillah, I went to work today in Sintok without any problems. Our immediate problem is how to fetch our new bibik from Port Klang who is expected to arrive this weekend.

  2. First hand experience fleeing from the flood.Got to ride a lorry,a van,a truck and wading in knee deep water and not forgetting riding at the back of a tractor.
    What an experience.But watching the water rising so fast too was a frightening episode.
    Alhamdullilah everything is ok now.

    Thanks for the updated info. What a tiring day cleaning all the mud from my mom's house @ Tmn Jitra which is now an island. Tonite, getting rest @ Darulaman Suite to re-charge the battery for long day tomorrow.

    Hope TNB will restore the supply soonest possible.

  4. Alhamdulillah nampak OK aje.. tak macam zaman Ayoh Wang bebudak dulu.. air setakat 4 kaki tu biasa masa banjir di Pulau Duyong.. nasib baik masa tu tiada pemilik kereta letak kereta di Pulau tu.. sekaran sejak ada Empangan Kenyir .. bau sekali banjir di pulau tu..
