Flash floods (again): What A (Lousy) Feeling...

Yes. A continuous heavy rain since early this morning has led to yet another series of flash floods.

What a lousy feeling.

Sure there are jokers out there trying to spin a good humour on this unnatural-yet-natural incident (for example: "The Wave Song (With Lyric and Sing along) - MrBrown Show Production", check out the YouTube clip if you like to laugh on others' pain of losing business due to flash floods.)

Flash floods were reported over several low-lying areas in Singapore on Saturday.

Callers called MediaCorp Hotline, saying several low-lying shop houses along Changi Road and Telok Kurau were flooded.

Floods were also reported along Braddell Road, Bukit Timah and Chai Chee.

At Upper Thomson Road, Singapore Civil Defence Officers helped evacuate 20 passengers stranded from inside an SBS bus due to the flooding.

Several passengers also had to be evacuated from another bus along Bukit Timah Road.

MediaCorp understands several drivers were also stranded in their vehicles until Civil Defence officers arrived.

One caller said a fallen tree along Dorset Road caused heavy traffic congestion.

PUB earlier said heavy showers with thunder and gusty winds were expected over many areas in Singapore between 6am and 7am on Saturday.
