Flash floods in Klang near Bukit Tinggi, KESAS

Flash floods in Klang near Bukit Tinggi, KESAS

Yesterday we saw parts of Shah Alam experiencing flash floods and today it looks like it’s Klang’s turn, with plenty of social media reports of rising water levels in Klang, particularly near the Bukit Tinggi area.

Social media users have reported that the GM Klang roundabout is partially flooded, causing massive traffic jams around the area and the KESAS highway. Astro Radio Traffic reports that there’s a two-hour jam from HICOM to Bandar Botanik, plus a one-hour delay on the opposite direction. Traffic around Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Bandar Puteri, Jalan Langat, Jalan Kebun and Jalan Johan Setia are affected too.

MetMalaysia has published a continuous rain warning up until November 11 so the sad fact is we might have to expect that this could be a daily occurrence for the rest of the week.

In addition to that, Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran Malaysia under Kementerian Alam Sekitar issued the warning below at 5pm today warning us to expect flash floods in Rompin, Klang, Mersing and Kuching.

If you’re planning to drive, do check beforehand if there are any flash floods affecting the areas along your route. If your route is affected by floods, delay your journey if possible and avoid forcing your way through flooded areas as it might cause considerable damage to your car.

Dear motorists, please check if you have selected the Special Perils insurance coverage add-on for your vehicle. Yes it’s optional, and you do have to specifically ask for it to be added.

It will cost a little extra, but it’s a relatively small fee relative to your vehicle’s insured value, and it could prove crucial if your car gets damaged by the floods. Without Special Perils coverage, you’d be completely on your own.

      NOT be voting for BN/PN thanks to their high prices, weaker malaysia currency than other countries, RM to USD conversion is really worst now, food prices really high, high corruptions and traitors, meritocracy only for the rich benefit, already hurting enough to all Malaysians. 60 over years for BN and 17 months for PN is enough of damage they had wrought to Malaysia and our people. Enough is enough. Say NO TO BN/PN! Agree from someone said

      BN manifesto also don’t have health care reform pledges….no minimum wage…no price reduction for hybrid cars

      Roadtax for EV also expensive how to afford

      But BN and PN are not doing much better and more useless than PH. LCS Scandal also got. One news shows that Najib stolen RM100 billion from Malaysia and Stashed from his overseas. Covid lockdown always favorite from PN. When flooding season coming, BN is ignoring flood season and BN also make promises for public transport during either pandemic/endemic but in the end today, already broken promises and also what happened on LRT breakdown recently causing transport system is in the mess Someone said

      Complaining about PH is all excuses. How about solving problems on corruption, also for LCS scandal first. Promise doesn’t matter. All parties also have lack on some promises but to get rid more corruption is high priority

    Can the smart VVIP who advocate monsoon polls tell our Klang or Sri Muda folks how to drive thro monsoon floods to vote?
    By the time they reach the polling station with stalled engines,,their houses might be inundated .
    Advocating monsoon polls is akin to telling people swim in a river with 50% chance of getting croc attacks.
    Now the chance has grown to 70%.

            Real bodoh. Every since PH came we never had stability or a government with direction. We traded 60 years stability for headless chicken management making mess everywhere. Finally we see how incompetent is PH and by the gods they ARE the pits of incompetency, they even rewrote that word in the dictionary to mean ‘Pakatan Harapan’.
