PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysia's Klang Valley residents heaved a sigh of relief on Monday evening as the Meteorological Department confirmed that the rain which fell over several areas in Selangor was due in part to a successful cloud seeding operation.
Its national weather centre director Muhammad Helmi Abdullah said the operation, carried out on Monday evening over Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor, could be deemed a success.
