The three stretches were impassable to all vehicles.
Two spots at the main road of Sungai Lembing town and KM28 of Jalan Kuantan-Sungai Lembing (Sungai Charu bridge) were closed to light vehicles.
According to State Secretary Datuk Seri Muhammad Safian Ismail, preparations have been made to deploy relief workers and send essential items to the affected areas.
“The Drainage and Irrigation Department has warned the National Security Council of heavy rainfall expected in Kuantan.
“As such, the council has activated and deployed rescue workers while the army has been placed on alert,” he said when contacted yesterday.
