Kuala Lumpur : The situation in Malaysia's Kelantan state is still critical, particularly in five districts, following the disruption caused by floods.

State Flood Disaster Committee chairman Mustapa Mohamed said electricity and water supply in Kuala Krai, Tanah Merah, Rantau Panjang, Pasir Mas and Tumpat, were still disrupted. The Star reported Monday.

"Only a third of people in Kelantan have access to electricity while only one-fourth here have clean water," said Mustapa.

He said although areas like Kota Baru, Pengkalan Chepa and Kubang Kerian were badly affected, authorities could still reach the evacuees there.

"We are identifying the number of houses that is completely destroyed. We have identified some 570 houses in Gua Musang. The number will increase," he added.

Authorities have deployed 11 helicopters as well as trucks to send aid.

The condition of the states of Terengganu, Pahang, Johor and Perak has also reportedly worsened since the floods hit the country Dec 16.
