Picking Up The Pieces.
One of the many unsung victims of the floods are the small independent businesses. Not many shops are insured or can insure against such natural disasters. The damages for each shop can exceed millions of ringgit.
At this electrical shop, this young man is trying to salvage whatever that is left. He is wiping and brushing mud off a LED bulb, hoping to sell it cheap. He can’t test it now as this part of town is still without electricity.
Expecting the usual annual floods, the shopkeepers and workers moved everything to the upper shelves. The fast rising water that swarmed the shop was unusually strong. The shelves, racks and goods collapsed.
