KUALA LUMPUR: Kajang town and its surrounding areas were hit by flash floods after almost three hours of heavy downpour Wednesday, which began at 2pm.
Selangor Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (Operation) Mohamad Sani Harul said among the badly affected areas were the Kajang town, Taman Jasmin and Saujana Impian.
He said 14 members of the rescue squad from Kajang and Bangi fire station were rushed to the areas after receiving reports about trapped victims.
“We are assisted by the police and Kajang Municipal Council’s rescue team during the operation to rescue the trapped victims,” he said when contacted.
Mohamad Sani said the heavy downpour had also caused the water level in the Jelok river to overflow and caused the low-lying areas to be submerged under 0.5 metres of flood waters.
“The floods subsided at around 6.30 pm,” he added, adding that no casualty was reported. – Bernama

The sun rises,
As dawn arrives,
The Saracen archers fires,
Several arrows into the sky.
The enemies on the other side,
Retreats due to their fear,
The cavalries rejoice with their pride,
After the field is blank and empty.
The Byzantine archers are now ready,
On the tower they take their places,
Not realising that the enemies,
Are already surrounding them.
“Retreat now!” orders their leader,
To the archers on the tower,
“But we have no fear!”
Says an archer aiming at the enemy.
He pulls the string to shoot his enemies,
But his arrow falls to the ground,
He can’t believe what he sees,
As he wakes up in surprise.
“It was just a dream after all,”
The Byzantine archer laughs,
Looking through his little window,
He’s shocked to see Saracen invading!
