Heavy rain causes flooding in several low-lying areas
By Asha Popatlal, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 15 January 2008 2351 hrs

SINGAPORE: Heavy rain resulted in flooding in several low-lying areas of Singapore on Tuesday.

In just less than two hours, rainfall recorded was about 30 percent of the average for the whole of January.

For Goodwood Florist along Thomson Road, it was a familiar story. Although the area has often experienced flooding, it was not so bad this time round.

The flooding was about ankle-length, and vehicles were not too affected by flood waters.

Callers to Channel NewsAsia's hotline also reported flooding in Tanjong Katong and Bishan, while Channel NewsAsia's skycam cameras caught views of vehicles stuck in flood waters at Mountbatten Road. - CNA/ir

Considering the amount of water falling from the sky on that day, i think our drainage system isnt doing a bad job lah. Certain areas are low-lying and sometimes with the fast pace of development it isnt easy to carve out spaces for storm drains in such areas.
