KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) has issued an alert-level continuous rain warning for seven states until Sunday.

In a statement today, it said continuous heavy rain was expected in Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Perak (Hulu Perak), Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang (Jerantut, Kuantan and Pekan).

In a separate statement, MetMalaysia also issued a warning of strong winds and rough seas of the first category expected to occur in Terengganu and Kelantan waters until Monday.

"Strong north-easterly winds of 40kph to 50kph with waves reaching up to 3.5m high may occur in Terengganu and Kelantan waters," it said, adding that strong winds were also expected off Samui, north of Tioman, Condore, Reef North, Layang-Layang and Palawan throughout the period.

MetMalaysia warned that the rough conditions would make all shipping and coastal activities — including fishing, water recreational activities and water sports — dangerous. — Bernama
