A number of areas on Penang island were hit by flash floods on Friday following an overnight downpour.
A spokesman for the Fire and Rescue Department said among the affected areas were Kampung Masjid, Kampung Rawa, Jalan P. Ramlee, Lintang P. Ramlee, Kampung Makam and Jalan Kuantan.
"The flooding is due to the continuous downpour as well as the fact that the drains in these places have not been able to accommodate the water flow," he said.
He added that the Sungai Pinang river was at warning level.
