Flash flooded normally caused by sudden heavy thunderstorm, but might be worsen by development of the affected areas if the drainage system is not done properly. SMART Tunnel is built to smoothen the traffic as well as to solve the problem of flash flood. However, it doesn't seems to be very effective in handling flash flood in KL area as places like Bukit Bintang and Jalan Tun Razak are prone to flash flood.
Pity the driver of this Mercedes-Benz! Hope the owner of the car bought insurance which covers damage from flood.
Wastes/materials that are not handled properly might clog the drain and thus, affecting the performance of drains to flow the water smmothly.
Jalan Tun Razak long time ago. It's already seriously congested during rush hour and the flash flood worsen it. *shake head*
There's nothing you can do other than to move to higher ground during a heavy thunderstorm to avoid such unfortunate incidents. Feel sorry to those who are trapped in a traffic jam when a flash flood happened.
