Parts of Penang were flooded after a heavy downpour at dawn, resulting in massive jams this morning.
Flood waters swamped Macalister Road while Jalan P Ramlee, Jalan Sungai Pinang and Jalan Rawang were also hit.
The area behind the hospital was not spared. So too Hutton Lane.
The flooding caused massive traffic jams around the areas affected including Jalan Perak and Jalan Delima.
What are the reasons for such flooding? High tide? more concrete and tar all around? poor drainage?
