PETALING JAYA: A climate expert has warned of more natural disasters in the country because of climate change and called for a proper early warning system to be put in place immediately.

Fredolin Tangang, a climatology and oceanography specialist, said usually it was the east coast states that were affected by floods caused by the year-end rain.

This time, however, a tropical depression pressure system in the South China Sea moved into the peninsula and strengthened.

“This is the first time that it has crossed into the Klang Valley and strengthened itself at the Straits of Melaka, affecting Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur,” Tangang, a Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia professor, told FMT.
