Malaysia reviews devastation after floods

Rebuilding after worst floods in decades in country's northeast is expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Flood waters in Malaysia are finally receding after devastating the country’s northeast peninsula.

    Thousands of people were forced to flee their homes after severe flooding, caused by torrential monsoon rains, inundated areas.

    For those now returning to some of the worst-hit areas, the scale of the damage is becoming clearer, with rebuilding expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
