Flash Flood Hit Central Part Of Singapore


Places 5 Comments

The rain came with the same ferocity as the “Great Singapore Flood“. In some residential areas like Carlisle Road, the water was knee-high, subsiding only after 30 minutes. Over at Goodman Road, near Tanjong Katong, some residents straggle to get their cars to drier ground. Other homes had their power supply knocked out by the flood water. Some Condo like Cluny Court, Gentle Reflections and Tessarina basement carparks were badly flooded and cars destroyed.

The National Environment Agency’s Meteorological Services said the downpour was caused by unstable weather conditions in the region, partly brought on by Typhoon Conson. The Public Utilities Board (PUB), a National water agency, said during the two-hour downpour, some 178.4 millimetres of rain were recorded in the central areas, while 179.6mm of rain were recorded in the eastern areas. This is abnormally high as the average total monthly rainfall of about 159 millimetres for July. According to PUB, the gates at Marina Barrage were opened to maintain the water level at Marina Reservoir within the normal range.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
