Kajang School Hit by Flash Flood, Teacher’s Car Becomes ‘Soaked’ In Water

It was the first severe flood in a few years.
A severe downpour today led to an unexpected flash flood in SMJK Yu Hua, Kajang, causing significant disruptions and damage.

The heavy rainfall, centred in Kajang, quickly overwhelmed the school drainage systems, resulting in rising water levels that submerged cars and affected local infrastructure.

“The rain started in the afternoon and within a short time, the whole area was filled with water,” he shared.

First severe flood in a few years

According to the witness, the school has historically been vulnerable to flooding after heavy rains.

“However, a few years ago the sewage system was upgraded to prevent flooding, and this was the first significant flood since then.”

The floodwaters that had surged through the area earlier began to recede as quickly as they had appeared, with the water levels dropping significantly by around 5pm.
