After a few hours of heavy downpour in Kuala Lumpur today (10 September), a few places have suffered flash floods. The most shocking rise of water level occurred in Masjid Jamek. Info Roadblock JPJ/POLIS also shared some pictures from the scene.
This tweet along with several others was uploaded a few hours after the heavy rain in KL showing the flash flood situation around KL.
The mixed feelings I get working in the heart of KL. This was where I had my lunch. Arguably one of the best Chapati spots. Nescafe ice got lunch. Teh tarik for flood. pic.twitter.com/zpPtjtaW1G

“Masjid Jamek KL turned into an island”
A lot of vehicles and shops around KL have been severely affected by the flash flood. A number of motorcycles can be seen submerged due to the sudden rise in water level.
The authorities are trying to handle the situation as we speak.
