Serious flash floods hit LDP Puchong @ Around Puchong IOI Mall
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.
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?
The flash flood, which was caused by backflow from monsoon drains feeding into the Klang river, reached 0.8m in height at parts of Km 21.36 and caused a number of cars to stall.
In addition, the basement floors of IOI Mall Puchong opposite the affected highway section were flooded as well.
The interior of the mall was hit as well, causing several businesses at the entrance to close down temporarily while cleaning operations were effected.
