The victims that are currently missing from the flood are housewife Salmah Mat Akib, 53, daughter Mohd Khairul Ikhwan Nor Azman and pregnant daughter-in-law Nurul Hanis Abu Hassan, 23.

Nurul’s husband was working at Penang and when he heard the news, he came back immediately.

“I planned to come back today and take her for her maternity check up today,” he said, mentioning that this is their first child and they’ve only been married for 6 months.
