Received this request to publish the following from a friend who is a supporter of PM DS Najib Razak.
Here it is,
And this is the latest statement issued by Najib just now,
The flood situation seems to be worsening with the number of evacuated victims getting closer to 100,000 all over the country.
This is via NST SMS alert just now:
NST 25/12 Flood in 5 states showed no signs of letting up, displacing 90,250 people in what is seen as biggest number of flood evacuees in history.
The worst hit is Kelantan.

They were better prepared this time.
The response to emergencies may not be perfect but seems to be better than during last year's flood.
The situation in Kelantan, though very bad, seems still manageable with rescuers and relief workers doing their best for the victims.
They were however hampered by very bad weather causing some rescue efforts and delivery of relief supplies to be delayed.
Other than messages sent by flood victims, I have also monitored the exchanges between the rescue and relief workers and could feel that they are trying their best with all sincerity to assist the flood victims.
This is a message by a pilot of an air force helicopter to his friends via wassap which was shared with me yesterday by his journalist friend,
"Kawan2 di tudm dah cuba rescue d area manik urai ari ni...tapi cuaca very bad from kelantan and from penang,,,tomorrow first flt depa try masuk lagi...doa yg terbaik...malam ni usaha utk hantar makanan bagi yg terperangkap di area k.lipis...semoga d permudah"
Let's pray for the safety of those affected by the flood and all involved in the rescue and relief efforts.
Those who could afford it, please lend a hand to help.
On my part I will try to do what I can at the place where I am now.
By the way, I don't think anyone should try to exploit the situation like this,
It's just not right, okay.
