Total disregard for warnings issued

Despite numerous deaths and repeated warnings by the authorities, the public continue to ignore the dangers of the current uncertain weather.

Over the last month, several people lost their lives after being swept away by strong currents while playing at the beach, but this has certainly not stopped people.

Even the red flag which signals danger is ignored and people continue to go into the sea.

This picture taken at Pantai Kempandang, Kuantan on Saturday clearly shows that people take these warnings too lightly.

The authorities have issued warnings about the strong sea currents and advised the people to stay clear of beaches during this season.

However, typical of our attitude, we rather ignore these warnings till tragedy strikes and it is too late.
