SHAH ALAM, Sept 19 ― The high tide phenomenon which hit coastal areas of Selangor today is reported to be under control with no overflowing of seawater.

Selangor Disaster Management Unit (SDMU) head Ahmad Fairuz Mohd Yusof when contacted said, only the yard of a house in Kampung Sungai Janggut, Kuala Selangor was inundated due to erosion at the  breakwater structure in Pantai Remis early this morning.
