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.

Someone should take a video shoot from the Ayer Itam Road approaching Penang Hill. There is so many bare patches of red earth on top the hill showing a lot of land slide and hill cuttings. Please put a stop to this before another disaster happen.
