What is new?Flash flood occurs every time it rains heavily in KL.This in not 1 in 50 years or 1 in 100 years flood but it happens almost every week or every month. May be the damage to properties is minimal but the sufferings and the inconvenieces suffered by the public is quite significant.Just read the news today.
If the authorities can spend billions to mitigate more damaging floods that only occurs 1 in 50 years or 100 years,why can't some fund be allocated to prevent or mitigate flash floods that occurs in the cities almost monthly or even weekly?
I think we need to do some re-thinking on this subject matter.
As far as I could remember since I moved to KL in 1984,the same type of floods occurs at the same places in the city every time we have heavy rainfalls. It is not the rainfall, but the drainage infra-structure needs upgrading and maintenance.
