Warning about flooding fell on deaf ears

Question of accountability: Who should take the blame for the loss of lives and property in this disastrous flood? – FAIHAN GHANI/The Star

It all happened very fast; the water level rose within three hours and by 6pm, it was about 1m inside our house. Power supply was disconnected and the entire neighbourhood was ringing with the sound of car alarms that had been set off by the floodwater.
