Flash floods strike Singapore

Flash floods strike Singapore on Thursday morning, hitting several parts in the west of the city-state and disrupting traffic. Places affected include Commonwealth, Queenstown and Clementi. Rising water levels also led to the closure of Ayer Rajah Expressway between Clementi and parts of East Coast Parkway at 8:48am. The affected stretches opened to traffic about an hour later.
