Rejang River disaster - 8 Oct, 2010
Stop press. Breaking news on the internet, youtube, facebook, BBC and TV3. Apparently torrential rains had caused a landslide at a timber camp at Balleh River, a tributary of the mighty Rejang river. The timber debris reached Kapit by 1pm and Song by 7.30pm on Thursday. Now it has reached Sibu and is expected to reach Sarikei any time tonight and tomorrow. The Rejang River has been closed for safety reasons. The entire width of the river is filled with dangerous debris. It's a shameful disaster.
