Penang floods: Understanding causes, seeking solutions

Exactly one week before the floods on 4-5 November, Dr Kam Suan Pheng of Penang Forum made this informative presentation at the Penang Forum 8: Dialogue on Flood on 29 October. She looked at revealing rainfall patterns and flood hot spots and discussed the various causes of floods and what could be done about each of these causes.

Her slide presentation in pdf format can be downloaded here.
