PETALING JAYA: A late evening thundersorm triggered flash floods and caused traffic congestion here on Wednesday.

NPE users have been advised to take alternate routes.

Other roads affected are Jalan Duta, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Cheras, the MRR2 near Taman Connaught and the East-West link near Bandar Permaisuri.

Portions of the Besraya highway are also affected.
