There are also three rivers that have reached the dangerous level (red), with six rivers reaching the warning level (orange).

 

“The rivers in the red are Sungai Gemas and Sungai Segamat (near Segamat Kecil) in Segamat, and Sungai Kahang in Kluang.

 

“The rivers in orange are Sungai Segamat and Sungai Muar in Segamat, Sungai Sarang Buaya in Muar, Sungai Pontian Besar in Kulai, Sungai Endau in Mersing, and Sungai Sembrong in Batu Pahat,” it said.
