Where In Klang Valley Is It Not Flooded This Weekend
Klang Valley is flooded and the rain is still falling after 48 hours.
The effects of climate change or just another wet December in Klang Valley? Well, either way it has been raining for more than 48 hours and it does not look like its stopping anytime in the next few hours.
The grey skies are the least of our worries. Since Friday evening there has been reports of flash floods in just about every area of Klang Valley and we have already seen more than 20 different videos of cars and even trucks stuck on flooded highways and roads.
Then there are homes that have been flooded with luxury cars sitting in flood waters. Soon there will be a used red Porsche 911, white Lamborghini Aventador and a black Porsche Cayenne on sale ‘due to owner upgrading’, non-smoker and it will be from a VVIP owner (probably a Dato) with ‘very low mileage’.
There will also be some low mileage reconditioned imported luxury cars like a black colour Mazda MX5 roadster and a white colour Toyota GT86 going for a slight ‘year end special discount’ and some other luxury vehicles just getting field tested as they are designed for situations like this. This will be a slightly used white Suzuki Jimny 4×4 and the all new Land Rover Defender in white colour as well.
Both the Jimny and Defender will be fine as they are designed for taking in the rough and after a quick wash, they will be ready for their new owners.
However, will the approved permit importer be honest in declaring these cars were in a flood? Will they disclose the possible damage to the electrical system and also cabin carpets as these cars are sitting low to the ground and from the pictures you can see the flood waters have risen above the bumper level.
These flooded cars in the pictures above will probably have no warranty coverage for the new buyer.
There are a number of highways that are also flooded which means access back to Klang Valley for those of you who took a drive away this weekend and also some of you who visited friends and family in neighboring states might be stuck in between your journey.
In Port Klang more than 50 homes along Jalan Seroja have been hit badly by flood waters with residents never seeing a flood for more than 20 years. Residents in Alam Impian are also having knee high floods in their homes. Teluk Pulai residents are also seeing floods for the very first time.
There is little that can be done, except wait and let the flood waters reduce. The clean up operations will be a huge task for the town councils and many already suffering businesses will be forced into premature closure as a result of the flood waters damaging their premises and equipment.
This non-stop rain is also disrupting work at Port Klang’s terminals at Northport, Westports and also Southport.
This non-stop rain we are having is the remnants of Typhoon Rai which has hit the Philippines.
