The Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM) will be conducting scheduled patrols at the site of the landslide along Jalan Kelab Ukay 4, Bukit Antarabangsa, here.

Selangor JBPM director, Norazam Khamis said close monitoring will be done as a precautionary measure in view of the unpredictable weather of late.

“We will be at the scene if it rains for more than 30 minutes. Patrols will also be conducted in areas with slopes and those at risk of being hit by flash floods,” he told Bernama here today.

Checks at the site found that works to install flat soil retaining metal pilings were still ongoing behind the Jalan Kelab Ukay 4 residential area.

Several affected residents were also seen packing their belongings.
