Hujan lebat dan angin kencang telah melanda Pulau Pinang semalam menyebabkan banjir, pokok tumbang dan tanah runtuh  di Georgetown dan Seberang Perai.

Keadaan bertambah buruk akibat peningkatan paras air di sungai utama di negeri itu seperti Sungai Pinang, Sungai Air Itam dan Sungai Dondang mencecah paras bahaya dengan masing-masing mencecah 2.83 meter, 6.58 meter dan 21.88 meter..

Menurut Berita Harian, di Georgetown, antara kawasan terjejas termasuk Kampung Masjid, Jalan P Ramlee, Sungai Pinang, Jalan Kebun Lama, Lebuh Carnovan, Jalan Anson dan Halaman Bukit Gambir.

Manakala antara kawasan terjejas di Seberang Perai ialah Taman Siakap, Permatang Rawa, Taman Senangin, Padang Lalang, Mak Mandin dan beberapa kawasan di Penanti.

Utusan Online melaporkan beberapa buah bot dan sampan nelayan di Teluk Bahang di sini dilaporkan rosak dan terdampar di daratan selepas ditolak ribut serta angin kencang dalam kejadian awal pagi tadi.

Sebuah feri milik Penang Port Sdn. Bhd. (Penang Port) turut dilaporkan rosak selepas ditolak ombak kuat dan melanggar bahagian jeti di Terminal Feri Raja Tun Uda, Butterworth di sini.

Pada 21 Oktober 2017, tragedi tanah runtuh di tapak pembinaan di Lengkok Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah telah mengorbankan 11 orang pekerja.
