Singapore – A heavy rainfall led to flames in several areas of Singapore Sunday afternoon (November 11th), including an area of the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE).
This is one day after the floods hit the areas of Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Batok in western Singapore, triggering investigations by the national water office PUB.
On Sunday, the PUB said in a statement at 3.45pm that the floods occurred at Lorong 23 Geylang and the KPE sliding road on Pan-Island to Changi.
"All the lanes are affected," the agency said as it urged motorists to pay attention and avoid the area.
Other sites also saw reports of high flood risk.
Water levels in the Yuan Ching Road / Yung Kuang Road, Gul Circle, Sime Darby, Alexandra, and Lorong Chuan drainage systems had risen to at least 90% during the storm.
Earlier, the National Environment Agency had warned of intense rain in the southern, western and central areas of Singapore from 1.45pm to 3pm.
Later he said the rain would fall in many areas of Singapore until 4pm.
Between 4.20 pm and 4:40 pm, the PUB tweeted that floods in KPE and Geylang retreated, adding that the move was satisfactory.
On Saturday night, about 100 millimeters of rainfall was recorded from 4:40 p.m. until 6 pm in Bukit Panjang, according to the PUB.
This is 40% of the average monthly rainfall in November.
Singapore and the region experience the monsoon conditions from the end of October.
The first two weeks of November are expected to be more fluid than the previous fortnight.
