A water spout crossed over Penang Bridge as bewildered motorists looked on this evening. Does anyone else think the weather is getting a bit more freakish or it it just me?
In Butterworth, a brief downpour at 5.45pm resulted in flash floods by 6.15pm in several housing areas. Floods hit about 100 homes in Taman Bagan, 250 in Taman Cantik and 70 in Taman Kerapu, according to a source, adding that the water level rose up to two feet in some places.
“(It is the) worst flood in Taman Bagan and Taman Cantik in a decade.”
He said the flooding could be due to the broken hinges of a trash screen at a tidal gate near the Bagan Specialist Centre, obstructing efforts to remove the rubbish.
More early warning signs for all of us.
