Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam, one of the worst-hit areas of the flood, saw several of its convenience stores looted yesterday.

According to Shah Alam police chief Assistant Commissioner Baharudin Mat Taib, the stores that were looted were KK Mart, 7-Eleven, Mydin Mart and Jimat Supermarket at Section 15 Shah Alam.

The incident took place between 1pm-2pm on 20 December, 3 days after the flooding started.

The stores, that were also engulfed by the flood, were allegedly raided by flood victims from Sri Muda that were desperate for food and other essentials. Residents said that they had not received food aid since Friday and many were stranded on their roofs for days with their homes submerged in flood waters.

A Twitter user posted on their account saying that his uncle was stranded at Sri Muda for three days with no assistance. They had to resort to their own measures at rescuing their loved ones.
