Is this the start of the flash-floods season again?

Several areas hit yesterday; waters subsided within 20min, says PUB


Flash floods hit several parts of Singapore on Wednesday, even as government agencies geared up for heavy rain during the annual north-east monsoon season.

The first floods hit the Ayer Rajah Expressway after the Alexandra exit at around noon, according to Facebook updates from the national water agency PUB.

Other areas affected included Thomson, Dunearn, Cambridge and Tiong Bahru roads.

The PUB said that in all these areas, traffic was not affected and the flash floods subsided within about 15 to 20 minutes, but some motorists reported stalled cars at Novena and a traffic jam from there to Marymount.
