Flood at Bukit Timah

I heard about the Bt. Timah flood yesterday from Keropokman’s tweet around noon. From there, I searched in Twitter and found many tweets mainly from students in Ngee Ann Polytechnic. As soon as I found some photos and video, I tweeted them by 3pm.

Yesterday’s flood reminded me of a similar one I experienced in the early 1990s (or was it late 1980s) when I was in Secondary (or was I in Primary?) school. Similar to that effect, Bt. Timah Rd was flooded and traffic came to a stall. I was actually at Bt. Timah Road itself, at the stretch where it was no flood. But there was no traffic, probably because the other stretches of the road was flooded and thus no vehicles could pass through where I was. My parent’s car was along the affected stretch and my mum described how the waters seeped into the car while she was driving and flooded the seats. We had to endure weeks of damp smell whenever we sat in the car.

Back then, Internet was non-existent and we had to wait for the following days to see the full impact from the newspapers or the evening news on TV. Today, I got the news within minutes after it happened from Twitter.

Today, everyone can get news the moment it happens. If you know where and how to search.
