A total of 142 people from 36 families in Sabah had been evacuated to four relief centres (PPS) as of 8am following floods in Penampang, Putatan, Papar and Beaufort.
This marked an increase from 88 people from 16 families yesterday.
In a statement, the Sabah disaster management committee secretariat said the four PPS were Dewan Kebudayaan in Penampang, which houses 20 victims from four families; Dewan PPR Sri Keramat, Putatan (61 people from 11 families); Kompleks Latihan dan Pemulihan OKU in Papar (10 people from two families); and Dewan DSP Mohd Dun Banir, Beaufort (51 victims from 19 families).
The PPS were opened on Sunday and Monday following the continuous heavy rain which began last Saturday.
Cloudy weather has been reported around Kota Kinabalu and the west coast of Sabah this morning, while the Malaysian Meteorological Department predicts thunderstorms in several locations and rain in the afternoon in the affected areas, except for Putatan.
