KUALA LUMPUR: Motorists at the New Pantai Highway (NPE) had sighted what was described as a waterspout around Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya area.

A local webportal had uploaded a video on the social media of the waterspout which had garnered more than 7,000 views.

The 66-seconds videos showed the sighting of what was believed to be a waterspout surrounded by storm clouds.

A Facebook user GP Bestari commented on the video, “Poor night market traders, they have set up their stalls but it was damaged by the strong winds.”

The heavy rain also affected several areas in Klang Valley including Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

Twitter user @TrafficDotMy had earlier reported the heavy rain had caused flash flood at Persiaran Kuchai, Salak Jaya at 4.16pm.

Traffic was slow moving at the area as motorists could only travel on one lane. The flash flood however had subsided six minutes later and traffic had returned to normal.

The user had also re-tweeted a tweet of several fallen trees in Puchong, Selangor.

When contacted, the Fire and Rescue Department said it had not received any reports on flash floods and uprooted trees.
