Landslide hits rear of longhouse

MIRI: Seven backyards (Tanju) of Rumah Bakom, a 14-door longhouse in Suai, Niah, were destroyed in a landslip from a hill located behind the longhouse early Sunday morning.
The incident reportedly occurred around 3am.
Luckily, none of the longhouse folks were injured.
The hill is located just at about three metres from the longhouse.
Miri acting district officer David Umpi, who was met at Batu Niah on Monday, said he had arranged for the Public Works Department to build a proper drainage system at the longhouse, which is located about 80 km from Miri City.
The landslide might have been caused by the incessant rain during the past few days.
