Musa-Aman-sabah-weather-condition-forecastKOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Musa Aman said the state government is closely monitoring the worsening weather conditions and the destruction caused by the tail end of tropical storm Lan in the west coast of Sabah.

He said the state disaster relief committee and the district level committees have been ordered to assist those affected by the storm, including flood victims in the hardest hit areas.

“It is one of the most severe storms we have experienced in a long time. I am aware there is a lot of damage caused by the strong winds including rooftops blown off and trees uprooted,” he said in a statement today.

He said the relevant authorities at the state and federal levels were monitoring and updating the public through existing channels including social media.

“I also caution the public, especially children, against going outdoors during the stormy weather and to follow directives by the authorities if there is a need to move to safer grounds,” he said.
