Today’s incessant rainfall has caused Kuala Lumpur to flood badly. So badly, in fact, that even Masjid Jamek has become “Pulau Jamek”, surrounded by a torrent of muddy floodwater.

Several roads in the city center were completely flooded, causing vehicles to be stranded and requiring help from the fire department to salvage.

Looks like some people aren’t going to go home today.

In the meantime, most roads in the city have now become rivers, so don’t expect cars to be able to travel in the next few hours.

Kuala Lumpur has been Venice for a while, to the pleasure of nobody.

Federal Territories minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa has asked that relevant authorities take immediate action to keep an eye on the situation.

Stay safe, KLites!
