Flash floods strike Kajang Silk Highway

KUALA LUMPUR: An hour-long downpour and blocked drainage system have caused flash floods up to a metre high at Km25.6 of the Kajang Silk Highway today.

Selangor Fire and Rescue Department director Norazam Khamis said vehicles headed to Kajang and Sungai Ramal could not pass through the stretch at 4.52pm.

Fire and Rescue Department personnel from the Kajang station were deployed to the scene and were assisted by the police and the highway concessionaire's personnel.

"The flash floods, however, subsided 30 minutes later and gradually cleared. Motorists can use the road now," said Norazam.
