SUBANG: An in-depth post-mortem will be conducted to determine why the floods in the east coast have worsened over the years, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today.
He said the post-mortem will be conducted once the situation in flood hit states such as Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang have improved.
" There are many factors which can contribute to this, including changes in the weather and environment," he told reporters after visiting the flood aid centre in TUDM here.
Earlier, Muhyiddin was given a briefing on the distribution of aid to the flood victims by the Army involved with the operations.
" So far I am satisfied with the distribution of aid to the flood victims and I am really grateful to all the caring Malaysians who have contributed to ease the difficulties faced by fellow Malaysians," he added.
He noted that the priority would be to send food and medication first.
"When the situation is better, we will send other necessities such as clothes," he said.
