KUANTAN: Maran is the only district still affected by floods in Pahang with two flood relief centres housing 34 victims.

As of noon today, the victims from 11 families were occupying the Kampung Baru multipurpose hall and SK Serengkam relief centres which were opened on Dec 28 and Dec 29 respectively.

A state Civil Defence Force (APM) spokesman said the relief centres in Bera and Temerloh were closed at noon today after all the victims were allowed to return home.
