Terengganu residents affected by tropical storm to get aid

KUALA TERENGGANU, Jan 3 — The Terengganu government will be providing special assistance to residents in the state whose houses were damaged by the tropical storm Pabuk prevailing now.

“During the warning period, residents are advised to stay at home and adhere to orders issued by the authorities,” he told a media conference here today.
