Its Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi said the locations involved eight state roads and 13 federal roads in Johor, Pahang, Kelantan, Perak, Terengganu, Kedah and Selangor.

“Of the 21 locations, four involved floods, collapsed slopes (10 locations), collapsed roads (four), and damaged or collapsed bridges (three).

“Johor was the most affected state with six locations, followed by Pahang (four areas), Kelantan and Perak (three areas each), Kedah and Terengganu (two areas each), and Selangor (one area),” he said.
