Flash Floods Again. Act Of Who?

Bedridden Puan Sheriah Bt. Ahmad helplessly waited in her water-immersed house in Kg Segambut Bahagia. I have arranged for her food supply from city hall.

City hall and fire-fighters arrived at the badly flooded areas soon after I called them for assistance. Religious school children have to be evacuated from school.

Countless buildings were hit this time with waters as deep as 2 feet.

This house owner has to break some part of his house in order to release floodwaters from the building.

Flash floods occurred again at Segambut Luar, Segambut Tengah, Segambut Dalam, Kg. Segambut Bahagia, Taman City Timur and Masjid Segambut after a 2-hour downpour about 5pm today. This is the second time in a week.

Who fault is this mishap? No time for that at the moment and let’s forget about the mega SMART Tunnel project which costs taxpayers in multi-millions.

What’s for sure is that flash floods will repeat over and over again if there is no permanent solution from the authorities.
