2 1/2 hours jam ....

Today, I took a day off , went to KL Sentral attended a free workshop. Good that I went, heard some neat information from the industry folks ..... Finished workshop at 5:30pm, it's heavy rains...down pouring. waited for a while, then quickly rushed to car , was carpooling with ZE. The minute we exited from KL Sentral and entered Jln Maharajalela ...we were stucked in jam, all the way to Jalan Duta .... for 2 1/2 hrs , we were wondering what the heck happening ....thought the construction of Duke Highway causing the massive traffic jam .... luckily ZE's parent was on the way home, they called and hinted us to detour from Jln Duta , took Hartamas - Segambut a bit - then Jalan Kuching ....

so tonight, many many many folks stucked in jam, some even worst, some car owners practically lost their cars , seeing their cars submerged in the water ...the root cause was the KL flood. This time flood in Jalan Ipoh Batu 1 onwards, including PWTC and surrounding .... aiii , KL flood is getting worst ...

Sunday night, my own house Bkt Rimau entrance roundabout - also flooded ... someone seriously need to look into this and take a wise action , to reduce the suffering, instead of 'tidak apa' attitude :( - the flood is a 'human-created' flood , I am very sure it can be avoided

In my opinion, the reason for the flood was that the rate of the downpour is much, much faster than the rate the river could dispatch the water. That's why flash flood is a phenomena only in tropical countries. Most western countries doesn't have to worry about this because their rainfall is puny company to ours - which also explain why New Orleans couldn't cope with Hurricane Katrina.

And while one may argue that we should have bigger and deeper river, I think that while that may helped, it will help for the type of rain that we know.. in these past 1 year, we have been getting TORRENTIAL rain at a rate unimaginable.. so no matter how deep we dig, we would face with congestions.
