PETALING JAYA: Several areas in the Klang Valley have been severely affected by flash floods and strong winds.

Kajang was worst hit on Monday evening with flood waters inundating several commercial areas in the township.

Shocked business owners and residents in the affected areas were still assessing their losses after the water had subsided.

The Kajang Municipal Council carried a massive clean-up operations in the town area following the incident.

A spokesman from the council said a team of first-responders were on standby round-the-clock to carry out disaster relief work in anticipation of bad weather over these few days.

Selangor MCA state liaison committee secretary Ng Chok Sin said the flash floods was another of Pakatan Rakyat’s lost list of unfulfilled election promises.

Ng urged newly-appointed Mentri Besar Azmin Ali to start working towards fulfilling Pakatan’s election promises.

In Shah Alam, many trees were uprooted due to strong winds. The affected areas include Bukit Jelutong, TTDI Jaya, Shah Alam City Centre, Section 9, Section 8, Section U2 and Section U8.

A response unit from the Shah Alam City Council worked around the clock to clear debris and fallen trees in the affected areas.

The council deployed about 100 personnel from its Park and Recreation Department including tipper trucks to clear debris and fallen branches.

The evening thunderstorm also affected several housing areas in Cheras resulting in flash floods.
