Flash floods in KL

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 11): The heavy downpour which started since 2pm today has caused flash floods in major roads in the city centre, resulting in traffic congestion.

Areas affected include Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Campbell, Masjid Jamek, the Ampang highway and Wangsa Maju area.

The public shared photographs of the floods in the city, with some images showing certain places in Dang Wangi such as a Petron petrol station flooded in thigh-deep water.
