Kota Bharu Flood: The Aftermath..

The worst flood since 10 yrs ago (some say 15 yrs, another says 20 yrs) has finally receded today, leaving pools of shallow muddy water scattered across the town. The yellowish mark left on the old palace walls tells roughly the flood water level. However,the mud and rubbish of all sorts which can be seen almost everywhere, probably brought all the way down from inhabitants/towns in the interior, show the real aftermath when flood struck. On my way home, I ventured into the reviving town. Stopped by and snapped some photos. Saw peoples washing, tidying up their houses/premises, slowly getting back to their normal lives like it was 3 days before. But the monsoon itself is far from over. Who knows that it might come back for another surprise? Still, the locals, got used to this for years, seem to care less .....
