Wet, wet, wet – the rain continues in Penang

This rainy period started in perhaps early September, and still it rains almost every day.  So now it’s well into its third month. Which is unusual. And thus it is cooler than usual and has been cool for all of this period.

Some parts of Penang are experiencing flooding, and I read yesterday that a landslide cut off Teluk Bahang on the north-west of the island.

In Pulau Tikus the government has done extensive drainage works, that are still ongoing, and now it doesn’t flood where I am – whereas it used to, although never so bad the water came into the house.  Although it came close. I had sandbags and a barrier prepared.  In the past I also occasionally moved my car to a multi-storey car park just in case, but that is not necessary now.

So, if renting or buying a property, this is one factor you might want to consider.
