Floods: How Did it Get This Bad?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been faced with a national crisis: Floods. From the Klang Valley to Pahang, Johor, Kelantan, Melaka and Sabah, many neighbourhoods have been hit badly, houses submerged, approximately 70 000 individuals (and counting) affected. Dr Mathen of Parti MUDA joins us to discuss MUDA’s flood relief efforts, observations from the ground and what the government should do to prevent this from happening again.
