Mother Nature shows no favourtism. Just because Orchard Road is Singapore's best known location doesn't mean it will be spared from natural disasters. And anyway this is so small scale, makes one wonder what people going through REAL floods have to go through.Our local news reports that it is due to a canal clogged by debris that caused the flooding, but surely the message we need to learn is something bigger.
I wonder what will happen if, due to global warming, sea levels were to rise significantly? Does this encounter give us an idea of what to expect then?
Anyway, here are some pictures taken from Straits Times website. ( Wow all those damaged HERMES goods! :-D )
