Another old story “Penang hit by flash floods” recycles again and again

Lim Guan Eng shall blame previous government or may be God for downpour.

No routine cleaning on underground drainage syetem in the Georgetown or Kuala Lumpur is the main cause of flash floods in our cities.

Expecting no one throwing rubbish into drainage is impossible task even in America with her better civil consciousness people. Cities in America have to use high power vacuum cleaner to do routine cleaning.

Multibillion SMART project will never prevent flash floods in KL or Georgetown because the drainage is simply clogled by all sorts of rubbish.

Malaysia will facing this problem forever whenther this country is under BN or PR government because of Malaysian poor maintenance culture.

Penang hit by flash floods

GEORGE TOWN: An early morning downpour that lasted for almost four hours caused flash floods in low-lying areas and roads in Penang this morning.

The early morning rush to work which started at 7am saw traffic in many areas come to a standstill, especially near Sungai Ara, Teluk Bahang, Teluk Kumbar, Bayan Baru and Bukit Mertajam.

A number of important roads like Jalan Perak, Jalan Tengah, Jalan Transfer, Jalan Hutton and Jalan Patani were also submerged in floodwaters while traffic police were stationed at these locations to divert traffic.

Minor accidents along the roads added on to the already chaotic conditions and massive traffic jams in Bayan Baru, George Town and the Penang Bridge. — Bernama
