Pictures show cars stranded in the knee-high water which also flooded houses and even a mall.

Many states are experiencing heavy rainfall, although not as severe as the one in Penang which flooded many areas and claimed seven lives last weekend. More than 6,000 people in Penang were also evacuated from their homes.

The Malaysian Meteorological Department has issued severe weather and widespread thunderstorm warnings today on their website.
