GEORGE TOWN, Nov 4 – Flash Floods hitting many low-lying areas of the city today again after hours of continuous downpour. Flash floods occurred in several areas in the southwest of the island, including Bayan Lepas, Bayan Baru and Baru Maung, causing drains to overflow.
Flood waters, which rose to ankle level during the one hour downpour, only receded by 12.30pm. Besides that, large pools of water have also been spotted at Jalan Anson, Jalan Datuk Keramat, Jalan P.Ramlee and Jalan Terengganu. This is the third time that parts of Penang have been flooded since Deepavali last week. Soaked Penangites are beginning to voice frustration with the authorities’ lack of action in mitigating constant flooding in the state.
