A member of the public has highlighted to TOC that a flash flood has occurred near Block 14 and 15 at Joo Seng Road today (30 April) due to heavy rain this evening.
Based on the video sent to us by the netizen, one can see that almost half of the parked vehicles’ tyres were submerged in water, while another car can be seen manoeuvring slowly through the flood.
In fact, the netizen shared with us a photo of the same location being flooded taken back in 2016.
If that’s not all, he also mentioned that the same spot was also covered in water causing inconvenience to the public in 2012. However, no picture of this was taken.
But, national water agency PUB took to its official Facebook page in 2012 to note about this flooding incident.
According to today’s weather report by the National Environment Agency (NEA), it stated that most areas in the city-state will be experiencing rain, with some areas even experiencing thundery showers.
TOC has reached out to Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef (MP for Marine Parade GRC) for her comments on this matter and is yet to receive a reply.
