The sudden storms hitting Klang Valley had caused flash floods in Kajang on Friday (02 Dec 2011) and also brought the traffic in KL to a standstill. If you make a search in Google for Kajang floods and youtube and you will see many clips being put up on the situation on Friday afternoon, including one where a woman was rescued from the top of a van. So whilst the rain is the talk of the town, let me post some pics of the showers that occurred yesterday (Saturday 03 Dec 2011).
|At 6pm, the clouds were not that thick and sunlight from the setting sun peeked through the clouds.|
Then the clouds started to roll in silently, and the heavens just opened up. I could see plastic bags being tossed about in the wind, doing acrobatic somersaults in the rain. After a while, thunder and lightning were going off all around the place.
|The dark clouds came creeping in.|
|And the heavens opened up. The rain started from the right hand side of the picture.|
|Sunset in the rain. The vertical 'blurry' lines are rain falling down in sheets!|
|Everything turned 'white' and fuzzy with the heavy downpour. Around this time, lightning and thunder were going off all around KL.|
|Visibility was cut down by the rain. The houses and the western city skyline had disappeared under the blanket of rain.|
About an hour after the rain had started, it thinned down before stopping, revealing a beautiful city skyline with the twilight painting colours in the evening sky.
|By 7.30pm, the rain had cleared and we get a beautiful twilight and the city lights again!|
