Penang sought help from the armed forces after typhoon-like winds and rain lashed the state since Saturday causing widespread floods, landslides and trees to topple. 

In a video posting on his Facebook page Sunday (Nov 5), Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said he called Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to seek his help and thanked the Deputy Prime Minister for picking up the call although it was almost 3.30am.
