Storms and flash floods ahead

City dwellers advised to take precautions with inter-monsoon weather this month.
KUALA LUMPUR: City dwellers are advised to take precautionary measures to face possible flash floods, thunderstorm, fallen trees and even landslides during the current weather uncertainties.
Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department director Khiruddin Drahman said the department, together with the National Security Council and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall, were fully prepared to respond to any untoward incidents.
He said City Hall had also taken the initiative to cut down trees with high probability of falling onto roads during thunderstorm.
“I would also like to advise city dwellers to take caution and avoid being in a field or under a tree during thunderstorm or heavy rain,” he said. “Apart from that, please avoid using the mobile phone during heavy rain and thunderstorm.”
The Meteorological Department has previously issued warnings to curtail outdoor activities in the afternoons, with the prospect of thunderstorms and strong winds occurring in several states on the west coast.
Met director-general Che Gayah Ismail said the current weather phenomenon was caused by the transition of the monsoon winds that triggered hot weather during the day as well as heavy rains, strong winds and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. The inter-monsoon period lasts until the end of May.

ITIS 2.0 on track

The RM200 mil Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS 2.0) is all set to start next month but experts say it takes more than CCTVs to solve crime and traffic problems.

All systems go: The video wall of the Integrated Transport Information System or ITIS 2.0 in TMC Bukit Jalil is now up and running.
A total of 967 closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) out of 1,000 have already been installed. Some 135 variable message signs or VMS boards are up and the giant multi-million ringgit video wall is now live over at the Transport Management Centre (TMC) in Bukit Jalil Technology Park, Sungei Besi.
After several delays, ITIS 2.0 is finally back on track.
The buzz can certainly be felt at the ITIS headquarters in Bukit Jalil. The excitement was evident when StarMetro was given a sneak peek ahead of its planned re-launch in May.
All the CCTVs and cameras have been linked up to the five police district headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, costing RM200mil in taxpayers’ funds to revive the long- dead system.  Read more ....
