Flash floods in all areas subsided: PUB

UPDATE

Flash floods that hit parts of Singapore on Monday had all subsided by late afternoon, the Public Utilities Board (PUB) said on Monday.

In its latest Facebook update at 4pm, the national water agency noted that the flash flood which occurred at the junction of Mandai Road and Woodlands Road had subsided, and traffic could now pass.

Earlier, PUB said the flash flood there had caused the area to be impassable to traffic.

Floods have also subsided at the slip road at KJE towards Woodlands, Swiss Club Road (near Sixth Ave) and Dunearn Road (near College Green).

At 2.59pm, the PUB said a flash flood also occurred at Stevens Close but had subsided by 3.04pm. The agency also said ponding at Paterson Road subsided at around 3.15pm.

Earlier, the National Environment Agency (NEA) issued an alert saying that heavy rain was expected over many areas of Singapore between 1.50pm and 3pm.
