DBKL added that Jalan Ampang to Jalan Dang Wangi is inundated with floodwaters. According to Free Malaysia Today, the waters on these roads could not be redirected due to clogged drains.
The police identified six roads that are still passable for motorists and they are:

An update by the police at 1.30pm said flood waters had receded in Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Batu Bata, Kampung Periuk, Lorong Raja Mahadi and Jalan Ampang.
