GEORGE TOWN: Penang was “not prepared” for the magnitude of the floods last November, but it will not be caught off guard again this year, the state government has declared.

State Environment Committee chairman Phee Boon Poh said with only weeks to go before the anniversary of the floods that nearly crippled the state after a tempest last Nov 4 and 5, Phee said the state was leaving nothing to chance.
