A crisis team which has been set up at the Interior Ministry is co-ordinating the provision of aid to locals in the hardest-hit areas.

The government is set to discuss the latest developments at its meeting on Wednesday and will undertake measures to tackle the situation, said the office. Additional funding from the premier's reserves will be earmarked towards helping those worst affected.
