There are no more roads closed to traffic in Sepang due to the floods while residents in areas still inundated are worried about the uncertain weather conditions.

Following the floods on Dec 18, several main roads in the district of Sepang had to be closed, including Jalan Kota Warisan heading towards the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Jalan Labu Lanjut, Jalan Bukit Changgang, Jalan Salak and Jalan Kampung Ginching.

Sepang district police chief ACP Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof when contacted on Wednesday (Dec 22) confirmed that there are no more roads closed in the district, and Jalan Simpang Kewa and Simpang Semarang had also been reopened to all vehicles since Tuesday.

Several roads such as in Jenderam and Kota Warisan and those heading to Banting and Dengkil, which were previously closed to traffic due to the floods, are now passable despite being covered with mud.

Wan Kamarul Azran said the Sepang district police headquarters are increasing monitoring over the many cars stuck in the mud due to the floods to prevent them from being stolen.

Kampung Sri Tanjung, Dengkil is also still flooded despite two sunny days, and the residents are worried about the weather.

Azlimi Ayub, 40, said the area is at risk of being flooded again due to its location of being near Sungai Langat.

“We are worried about the overcast today (Wednesday). It looks like it‘s going to rain as the knee-high floodwater level has not subsided since two days ago, although the weather is fine now. There’s the risk of overflowing if there’s heavy rain,” he added.

Residents were seen trying to get home by wading through the floodwaters to view the extent of damage to their homes.

Most of the houses are covered with mud, with electrical appliances, furniture and rubbish floating in the floodwaters.
