KL deluged by flash floodsCompiled by K.S.Usha Devi; June 8 - June 14
HIT BY FLOODS (June 11): Hundreds of thousands of people were caught in chaos caused by flash floods that saw one person drowned in what has been described as the worst deluge to hit KL city for the past year. Hundreds of cars were damaged when underground car parks were turned into giant pools and police reported that several people were also injured in various accidents due to the floods. The three-hour rain that brought much relief from the heat started at 4pm and within 30 minutes became a downpour trapping the hundreds of thousands of people as they tried to make their way home from work.
