Worst-ever flood in Klang, federal gov't blamed

Pakatan Rakyat said the federal authorities have to solve the flood situation as Klang, Selangor, has been badly hit by floods from heavy rains starting around midnight.
“Klang is badly hit by floods this morning. The federal Drainage and Irrigation Department (DID) must do something because the bulk of allocations are with them.

“Don't victimise Pakatan state and local governments,” wrote Selangor speaker Teng Chang Khim this morning on Twitter.

NONEThe Chinese language media this morning reported heavy rain starting around midnight wreaking havoc in the coastal city, in what was dubbed the most serious flooding in Klang’s history.

According to the reports, some low-lying areas were hit by waters as high as 4m, submerging cars and causing massive traffic jams in the vicinity.

Some of the worst-hit areas reported included Bukit Tinggi, Pandamaran, Taman Chi Liung, and Southern Park, Klang Utama.

In Klang Utama, residential as well as industrial areas and shoplots were inundated. At least four schools in South Klang have been closed.

“I woke up to a flooded living room. The flood outside is reaching knee-level,” a resident in Taman Melawis told Malaysiakini this morning.
