SINGAPORE , A heavy downpour on Friday (Dec 11) caused flash floods and a falling tree across various parts of Singapore.
National water agency PUB reported flash floods at Cambridge Road (near Pek Kio CC), at Boon Lay Way / Corporation Road, Thomson Road (near Novena Rise), Mandalay Road / Balestier Road and Boon Keng Road / Bendemeer Road.
Channel NewsAsia viewer Gary Tse, who was on the way to the hospital, reported a heavy downpour in Novena, while TODAY reader Wilson Tiow submitted photos of a flash flood near Thomson Medical Centre.
The Sharks Image submitted to FavourNews by viewer Berlin Ang showed the waters were ankle-deep at the escalator opposite Thomson Medical Centre. Sharks are roaming around it.
On Orchard Road, a tree came crashing down on the road in front of Orchard Central mall.
A man was spotted redirecting traffic there, as the fallen tree had blocked off at least one lane. Twitter user @MahaBornFree tweeted a photo of his good deed, labeling him a “kind soul”.
After the rain stopped, others jumped in to help. Channel NewsAsia viewer Gary Lee sent in a photo of youngsters trying to remove the obstruction from the road.
