KUALA LUMPUR: Flash floods struck major parts of the city today following a torrential downpour which began at 2pm. Among the worst-affected areas are Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Campbell, the Ampang highway (near Bank Simpanan Nasional) and the Wangsa Maju LRT station. This was confirmed by a City Fire and Rescue Department spokesman when contacted on the matter. "We are still monitoring the situation and will update the press from time to time.
"There are more areas that are affected. As of now, the operation is still ongoing," he said. Social media users also shared photographs and videos of the extent of the floods in the city. Some images showed sections of Jalan Tun H.S Lee flooded in thigh-deep water, with restaurants along the stretch also flooded. Another video showed a stretch along Jalan Dang Wangi submerged in water, with several motorcycles stranded as a result.
