However, authorities also urged drivers to follow up with the weather condition through traffic pamphlets and social media, as well as abide by rules and regulation in order to avoid the occurring of any fatal accidents.

Various parts of the country witnessed continuous rainfall with different intensities.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) pointed out that the chances of rainfall would remain likely even after Wednesday, as the weather would be cloudy almost all over the places.

The Centre appealed to individuals to be careful and exercise caution while driving during the rainfall, as well as with low visibility caused by the active winds.
