Written on February 19, 2013 – 8:08 am | by Saimatkong Tian Leong | 4,744 views

Two southbound sections of the LDP (Damansara-Puchong Highway), around Puchong IOI Mall, were hit by flash floods for about 30 minutes on Monday due to heavy rains and backflow from the Klang River.

週一下午一場大雨,導致白蒲大道的蒲種山莊至蒲種市中心路段,多處發生閃電水災,導致多輛交通工具陷入水鄉,涉及車輛包括一輛工廠迷你巴士、一輛豐田Vios及Myvi等。此外,IOI購物中心部分商店的地面也積水,其露天停車場的積水更深達兩呎。

Puchong Banjir!

LDP was flooded around 5.22pm, luckily I skipped the flash flood and never caught in the jam! LDP at IOI Mall become Puchong River yesterday~! The flash flood in IOI Mall Puchong could be caused by the construction of the MRT nearby?
