Another Month, Another Round of Floods in Malaysia

More than 50,000 people displaced, and 4 people dead. The southern states of Peninsular Malaysia is facing yet another severe case of floods, especially in Johor, as the Malaysian Meteorological Department warns that the current monsoon season is likely to last until April. But with one flood after another, how much of it is “natural” and how much is driven by uncontrolled human activity? And how are all these instances of floods upending the lives of people? We find out from Aroe Ajoeni, Communications Director with Klima Action Malaysia (KAMY).
