Heavy flash floods hit Singapore

Reading Time: 1 minute

Singapore floodsMany parts of Singapore were affected by flash floods on September 5 in the morning after heavy thundery showers went down on the city state, bringing traffic to a complete halt, uprooting trees and closing a section of the Ayer Rajah Expressway.

Tree fell on cars and fences collapsed, users reported on Twitter and Facebook, causing massive traffic jam along Dunearn Road

Singapore’s national water agency PUB said on its Facebook page that flash floods occurred in several areas in the western part of the city, including the junction of Commonwealth Drive and Commonwealth Avenue, Alexandra Road at the junction of Delta Road, and along the Ayer Rajah Expressway towards Clementi.

Other areas that reported high flood risk were Pandan Kechil, Sime Darby Centre, Sunset, Alexandra Canal near Zion Road and Indus Road/Ganges Avenue. Around 10am the water succeeded.

Flash floods are not uncommon to Singapore. A series of flash floods hit various parts of the city state Singapore in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The floods came about due to the higher-than-average rainfall that aggregated over a short period of time.
