  • Description

    IN NORTHERN SARAWAK AND THE TEMBURONG DISTRICT OF BRUNEI, BRITISH FORCES ARE STILL HELPING THE VICTIMS OF THE WORST AFFECTED AREAS IN THE RECORD BORNEO FLOODS.

    THE FLOOD WATERS HAVE GONE DOWN BUT THERE IS LITTLE FOOD, HOMES HAVE BEEN WASHED AWAY AND THE DANGER OF DISEASE IS SERIOUS. FOOD SUPPLIES ARE BEING FLOWN IN, PEOPLE EVACUATED TO TEMPORARY LIVING QUARTERS AND SERVICE DOCTORS ARE CHECKING THE POPULATION.

    HELICOPTERS AND BOATS ARE HELPING TO GET FOOD TO THE STRANDED DAYAK AND OTHER PEOPLES AFFECTED. ALMOST ALL RICE FIELDS AND OTHER FOOD SOURCES IN THE AREA HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
