Residents in Simei woke up to flashes of lightning illuminating the skies yesterday as an early-morning thunderstorm drenched the island.
The heavy rain and strong winds resulted in trees falling at several places around Singapore.
One tree fell onto the Pan-Island Expressway, causing a traffic jam that lasted more than an hour. Another tree hit a car at a condominium.
According to the National Environment Agency's website, thundery showers are expected over the next four days, either in the morning, or in the late morning and early afternoon.
