Widespread floods have killed at least six people, cut off power and water supply and displaced 60,000 in southern Malaysia, disaster relief officials said Friday, amid warnings of storms and tidal surges in other parts of the country. Waters appeared to recede in parts of worst-hit southern Johor state after nearly a week, but hundreds of towns and villages remained inundated amid rainy conditions, said Badrul Shah, deputy director of the government's Disaster and Crisis Division
