Published:  |  Modified:

Due to flash floods following heavy rain, several parts of Shah Alam are currently submerged in water.

Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) in a tweet confirmed that water levels have increased at KM 15.7 from Sungai Rasau heading to Batu Tiga.

“Both the middle and left lanes of the highway are blocked (due to high water),” tweeted LLM.

Some Twitter users also tweeted pictures of Section 13, Shah Alam showing numerous cars submerged by the mud-filled waters.

Today’s episode follows similar ones after the heavy rain yesterday which saw flash floods in several parts of the Klang Valley.

Many were caught in traffic jams for hours after key roads were flooded.

Yesterday’s floods in Shah Alam at 1pm witnessed water rising at Section 13, Section 9, Section U8 and Batu Tiga.

KTM’s Komuter service was also disrupted when the tracks near the Batu Tiga station went underwater.

Meanwhile, Astro Radio Traffic on its Facebook page said the flash floods in Shah Alam today caused congestion around the Management and Science University (MSU), at Giant Shah Alam, at Section 13 to Laman Seri, at the Melawati Stadium to the Shah Alam Club, at Section 9 to Tesco Shah Alam as well as at Bukit Jelutong heading towards Shah Alam.

Twitter user ‘Vijhay Vick’ tweeted a picture of the vehicle tunnel heading into Shah Alam Stadium which was flooded.

Malaysia will face United Arab Emirates (UAE) for a World Cup qualifier match at the stadium tonight.
