Thousands flee Malaysia floods

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Rescue teams are out in boats picking up those stranded in the floods that have swamped Malaysia's east coast. More than 13, 000 have been evacuated. At least one person's reported to have died. Nearly 200 makeshift relief centres have been set up to shelter the evacuees. The floods have been triggered by torrential monsoon rains.
