    Default Bukit Timah area got flooded

    Whether they call it flash flood, or giant water ponding, the damage is there.

    Cars were damaged, like those caught in knee high water or those park in underground carparks. Wonder if the damage could be claim by insurance, the comprehensive kind. Never bordered to read the insurance document at all.

    Well, for me, I will think twice before parking in a risky carpark like in 6 Ave, Serene Centre or Coronation.

    Maybe, there should be signboard to warn motorist of flooding risk in those basement carpark.

    Wonder how many of those staying in big and expensive homes were affected.

    Fortunately, NEA, formerly the Drainage Dept has done a good job in the prevention of flood. Flooding has become rare these days.

    OOps, I got it mixed up.

    It should have been MOE, Ministry of the Environment, Drainage dept, and then, now transferred to be under PUB. Well, PUB Water dept would now take care of rain water, dirty water (sewage) and portable water.

    MOE is Ministry of Education. Ministry of Environment is ENV

    Think under such serious situation, either SCDF or Traffic police should send out mass warning messages thru email and sms, just like what was done during the hunt for Mas Selamat.

    Now, this time, Orchard Road, Newton and Bukit Timah got flooded again.

    They call it flash flood - meaning something that comes and goes very fast.

    It was just about half a year ago that we got some serious floods.

    Just wonder how those folks in PUB, drainage department works out their system. I understand that they work out based on some statistical model like a flood occurrence that comes in 10yr, 50yr cycle. In my opinion, a flood that occurs in 6months is somewhat too often.

    Pity those who park in a basement carpark affected by the floods.......
