Boulders crash on homes after landslip

The Malay Mail 14/01/2006

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- Two double storey terrace houses in Taman Bukit Pandan, Cheras, here, were badly damaged when boulders came crashing following a landslide in Jalan Bukit Pandan 3, Friday night.

However, during the 7 pm incident the houses were unoccupied as the occupants were evacuated on Jan 5 after it was found that the area was no longer safe following a minor landslide on the same day.

Also evacuated are occupants of five other adjoining houses who are now putting up in a hotel, said Teng Tien Meng, private secretary to Ampang Jaya member of Parliament, Datuk Ong Tee Keat, when met at the site.

"Before this several boulders crashed onto a nearby children's playground and the developer had to evacuate the occupants," he said.

He said owners of both the houses were informed on the incident.

Meanwhile, a resident, Lee Hock Chuan, 48, said those living in the housing area are now living in fear.

This, he said, is due to the clearing of the hill behind the housing estate.

"We had brought up the matter to the developer but they said the area near our houses are safe, whereas its frightening especially when its raining nowadays," he said.

He also urged the authorities to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of other residents.
