Comments: On 3 November, the Malaysian Metereological Office declared that the Northeast Monsoon Season in Malaysia will begin earlier than expected, from 7 November 2022 to continue until March 2023. It was forecast that between 4 to 6 episodes of heavy rain will occur within this duration. Continuous rain over several days would lead to floods in areas of low-lying land as well as areas with close proximity to rivers. Heavy rains caused flash floods in 3 states on the 9th of December. However, from 17 to 20 December, heavy rain has been reported in many areas across multiple states. As of the 21st of December morning, a total of 71,503 people evacuated in 439 temporary shelters that are currently active in five states (Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Johor, and Perak), and five people reported death. Kelantan and Terengganu are the most affected states at present time with total 71,180 people evacuated.
