International Heavy rain and flooding in East Malaysia Mon 12 Feb 2018: From 3 February for about a week, heavy rain in East Malaysia (the part of Malaysia on the northern part of Borneo) had heavy rain and flooding. The heaviest rain was on 5 and 6 February when 100 to 200mm fell on already saturated soil. A gauge just south of Kuching, Sarawak, recorded 197.5mm in 24 hours. Nearly 5,000 people were evacuated across East Malaysia as floodwaters rose, not beginning to subside until 12 February. [Floodlist, Reliefweb]
