Friday, February 6, 2009


It was raining for almost 24 hours the day before and the water level was rising fast. This pic was taken at about 1730 on Thursday. At noon the water level was about 5 feet lower.

This morning, at about 0730 hrs, this is how the water level looks like and the flow was fast. If today, no rain recorded from the upper reaches of Rajang and Balleh, the water level will drops. By estimate, this water will reach Sibu within the next 24 hours or so.

The Sarawak Government Almanac recorded that the next King Tide will occur from 7 February to 14 February 2009. The high water level will climb from 5.5m to 6.2m and stays at that level for 3 days (10-12.02.09)

I won't be in Sibu.......but then i could imagine.
