Hujan lebat dan angin kencang telah melanda Pulau Pinang semalam menyebabkan banjir, pokok tumbang dan tanah runtuh  di Georgetown dan Seberang Perai.

Keadaan bertambah buruk akibat peningkatan paras air di sungai utama di negeri itu seperti Sungai Pinang, Sungai Air Itam dan Sungai Dondang mencecah paras bahaya dengan masing-masing mencecah 2.83 meter, 6.58 meter dan 21.88 meter..

Menurut Berita Harian, di Georgetown, antara kawasan terjejas termasuk Kampung Masjid, Jalan P Ramlee, Sungai Pinang, Jalan Kebun Lama, Lebuh Carnovan, Jalan Anson dan Halaman Bukit Gambir.

Manakala antara kawasan terjejas di Seberang Perai ialah Taman Siakap, Permatang Rawa, Taman Senangin, Padang Lalang, Mak Mandin dan beberapa kawasan di Penanti.

Utusan Online melaporkan beberapa buah bot dan sampan nelayan di Teluk Bahang di sini dilaporkan rosak dan terdampar di daratan selepas ditolak ribut serta angin kencang dalam kejadian awal pagi tadi.

Sebuah feri milik Penang Port Sdn. Bhd. (Penang Port) turut dilaporkan rosak selepas ditolak ombak kuat dan melanggar bahagian jeti di Terminal Feri Raja Tun Uda, Butterworth di sini.

GILA: Budak Tiga Tahun Menunggang Ular Sawa 20 Kaki (Video)

Sebuah video yang di siarkan oleh DailyMail Online di mana seorang budak berumur 3 tahun di Vietnam ‘menunggang’ seekor ular sawa yang dijadikan haiwan peliharaan keluarganya telah tular di internet. 

Kanak-kanak tersebut yang bernama Truong begitu seronok menunggang ular sawa itu di kawasan rumahnya di perkampungan Ha Long di daerah Ha Trung.

Menurut DailyMail, ular tersebut berukuran 20 kaki panjang dan beratnya 80 kilogram (176lb).

Video yang berdurasi 2 minit itu mengejutkan orang ramai, dan bagi saya, ini adalah satu tindakan yang sangat tidak bijak dan tidak bertanggungjawab kerana ular sawa tersebut bukan sahaja boleh menelan kanak-kanak tersebut, malah juga anggota keluarganya yang dewasa.

Walapun keluarganya mendakwa bahawa ular sawa tersebut jinak dan selama empat tahun tidak pernah melawan tuannya, tetapi ia boleh bertindak dengan agresif bila-bila sahaja.

Bagi saya tindakan membiarkan kanak-kanak ini terdedah kepada bahaya yang boleh mengancam nyawanya adalah bertentangan dengan hak asasi kanak-kanak.

Saksikan video tersebut di bawah…

LGE Lantik Pengkhianat Raja Sebagai Pegawai Penerangan Tentang Islam?

Penang Chief Minister’s Office today announced the appointment of PKR liberal activist Wan Ji Wan Hussin as the information officer “to help counter false narratives hurled at the state government on matters concerning Islam”.

The infamous Wan Ji whose plan to remove the monarchy system in Malaysia was exposed on video, took his oath of office before Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng in Komtar today.

And as a lawmaker, Lim Guan Eng must be aware that the Section 121B of the Penal Code says that anyone whoever compasses, imagines, invents or intends the deposition or deprivation of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong from the sovereignty of Malaysia shall be punished with imprisonment for life and shall also be liable to fine.

For a state government to appoint a person who plans to bring down the Sultans who are Heads of Islam to a position related to Islamic matters is an insult to the Royal Institutions.

Or does Lim Guan Eng agrees with Wan Ji’s illegal plan as well?

About three hours after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 storm, it was downgraded to a Category 3 storm as it made a second landfall on the northeastern shore of Copano Bay after winds decreased to 125 mph from maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.

Earlier, the National Hurricane Center said the Category 4 Hurricane Harvey made landfall Friday night on the Texas coast between Port Aransas and Port O’Connor at around 10 pm local , with very strong winds of 130 mph, bringing up to 13 feet of storm surge, large, destructive waves and very heavy rain.

At the time, the storm’s eye was 30 miles away from the coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas causing power outrages in the city and nearby towns.

Harvey is the first Category 4 hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Hurricane Charley hit Florida in 2004.
 
Forecasters predicted that the slow-moving storm will dump heavy rain on South Texas and parts of Louisiana until the middle of next week, where some places could receive as much as 40 inches.
 
Catastrophic flooding is expected, including in inland areas as river water levels rise.
