Flash floods hit Puchong

Was told this evening about Puchong being flooded but didn't expect it to be this bad.

According to The Star, the 30-minute flash flood was caused by backflow from monsoon drains feeding into the Klang river. It reached 0.8m in height at parts of Km 21.36 and caused a number of cars to stall.

The basement floors of IOI Mall Puchong opposite the affected highway section were flooded as well including the interior of the mall, causing several businesses at the entrance to shut down temporarily while cleaning operations were taking place.
