MIRI: Floodwaters have inundated entire villages in Lawas, Sarawak – with water levels posing a danger to children in some places.

Latest pictures posted by the Sarawak Disaster Relief Management Committee around 1pm on Thursday (Dec 5) showed water entering houses and reaching the shoulders of small children inside.

Furniture like sofa sets and chairs can be seen floating.

Kampung Kelepas, Kampung Seberang and Kampung Siang Siang are covered in water over a metre high.

“Evacuations are taking place and an evacuation centre has been opened at Trusan (community hall),” it said.
