Over 80 houses in the Teluk Bahang area fell victim to flash floods following a downpour which took place Sunday morning.

Residents of Taman Nelayan Kuala Sungai Pinang, Kampung Sungai Rusa, Taman Manggis, Bukit Kechil, Kampung Air Putih and Sungai Pinang were affected by flood waters rising up to 0.6m.

Flash floods have also hit Seberang Prai, with 0.1 to 0.3m high waters at Taman Lima Kongsi, Kampung Sungai Baong, Jalan Persekutuan Valdor, Kampung Valdor and Kampung Masjid Baru.

Netizens have taken to social media sharing how devastating things are, what more with the CMCO still in place.

Pictures have also made its way on social media, showcasing how overflowing gutters and rivers have caused houses to be devastated by the large body of water.

According to the Penang flood mitigation committee chairman Zairil Khir Johari, the floods occurred due to heavy rain within a short period of time.

Let’s hope and pray that we will hear some positives as time goes by and that Penangites will bounce back when all of this is over.
