An estimated 2 to 3 million books were damaged by flood water at the Big Bad Wolf Warehouse and BookXcess @ Wolf House bookstore in Section 33, Taman Alam Indah.

The recent flood that has killed 48 people so far, did not spare the millions of books either.

The co-founder of BookXcess and Big Bad Wolf Books, Andrew Yap said that the total loss was still being evaluated and that it would take some time to do so considering the huge damage.

β€œHowever, from the initial assessment, millions of books have definitely been damaged, destroyed and could not be salvaged along with some equipment in the warehouse,” he said.

Photojournalist, Sadiq Asyraf tweeted photos of the aftermath of the flood at the Shah Alam Warehouse.
