Freak storm and strong winds caused more flooding yesterday

**Read about the Puchong flash flood on Feb 18, 2013

Freak storm and strong winds yesterday wreaked havoc across the Klang Valley resulting in flash floods and trees being uprooted damaging property.

This image shows vehicles negotiating floodwaters over a stretch of the Damansara-Puchong Highway in Puchong.

Bumper-to-bumper traffic along Jalan Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur.

On the east coast, Kuantan was not spared either as several areas in the state capital of Pahang were hit, areas which do not normally experience floods.

Malaysians have been urged to brace for the worst in anticipation of weather pattern changes.

Meanwhile, Kajang is recovering from the flood which stuck this town south of Kuala Lumpur on Friday when torrential rain broke the riverbank causing flood waters to rise rapidly flooding the town for three hours.

  1. OMG, that's scary!! and i really do not hope we will be the next after Thailand and Singapore's Orchard~~ @_@"

  2. Hopefully it won't flood again in the next couple of days. I am in Sabah right now, but left my car in my company in KL!

  3. Hope it won't get any worse!

    Aren't the local government prepared after what happened in Thailand? :(

  4. On our way out for dinner last night saw some branches on the road and some flower pots upside down outside the restaurant.

  5. The weather is indeed freaky these days! I won't dare to park at basement car parks in KL!!

  6. SK, it's La Nina up to her mischief again.

    KS, if it's any consolation, we have superb weather here in KL yesterday and today looks like a dry day too. Enjoy your visit. How's the weather there in the Land Below the Wind?

  7. Lina, same old, same old flooding in the east coast and now we are getting floods too in the west. However there are steps taken including widening rivers and clearing debris to prevent clogging. Hope you are having better weather in Japan.

    Bananaz, hope no one was hurt nor property damaged.

  8. Foong, right - better be safe than sorry. LOL
