Meanwhile, Terengganu records the second highest number of flood evacuees, with 10,103 evacuees in 113 centres. 

Although the number of evacuees in Terengganu is reduced compared to yesterday (Tuesday) evening, with 10,199 evacuees, it doesn’t seem that the floods will stop anytime soon. NADMA has already issued another advisory to warn the people of continuous rains in several districts across three states.
