The flood season is officially here.

On Friday, many Singaporeans stuck in "wet situations", mainly in the northern, eastern and western areas, flocked to social media to share their reactions.

At 11am, the National Environment Agency announced on Twitter saying that thundery showers might be hitting several areas across Singapore.

PUB Singapore later sent a series of tweets, saying that roads affected by floods were: Keng Lee road, Cambridge road, Thomson road, Boon Lay Way, Corporation road, Mandalay road, Balestier road, Boon Keng road and Bendemeer road.

The downpour went on for about two hours; NEA announced at 2:30pm that the heavy rain had eased. 

However, many who were trapped in the floods and rain posted images and videos of the areas they were in, on social media.

Twitter user known as Nicole, posted a video on Twitter of the howling winds and high water level in Novena, saying, “Flooding at Novena, can’t go out.”

A twitter user known as Lucas posted a photo of the flood that happened outside Toa Payoh Stadium.

Many posted photos of the flood on Instagram too.

The floods also affected patrons at a hawker centre.
