Flooding in Malaysia and Thailand has killed 24 people and left nearly 160,000 homeless since mid-December, in the deadliest regional flood season in a decade, according to recent reports.
Malaysian authorities said the rain is expected to last at least another week, Reuters reported.
The death total includes 10 in Malaysia and 14 in Southern Thailand.
The news comes as Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak visited sites of the flooding following his return from Hawaii on Friday. Razak had been criticized for playing golf with U.S. President Barack Obama during the floods.
