PETALING JAYA, Aug 16 — A spell of heavy rain caused flash floods to sweep through several areas of Kuala Lumpur yesterday during rush hour.
Some social media users chose to look at the funny side of the horrid weather and floods by posting photos of potential “culprits” behind the flood.
Twitter user Khairil Amzir posted a funny picture of a running tap splashing into the floodwaters below it at a petrol station with a partially-submerged vehicle in the background.
“USJ hit by flash floods. Was it caused by that open pipe?” he wrote.

Adakah disebabkan paip tu tak tutup? pic.twitter.com/NlmSOSVr9n
Needless to say, motorists suffered the worst side of the floods and a viral video making the rounds on social media shows two cars being swept along by the current.
Twitter user Chris the Chindian wondered aloud if a Myvi could handle such conditions.

Side note: Do you think a MyVi could take this 😎 pic.twitter.com/kHB5ca9x1K
It wasn’t all dark clouds and stormy skies yesterday, however, as the bad weather seems to have brought out the good in a few Malaysians.
Yeen Rahman posted a Twitter video showing two young men helping to direct traffic away from the flood in Subang Jaya and thanked them for lending a hand to their fellow road users.
These 2 gentlemen deserve a big THANK YOU for helping out during the 'banjir' in USJ this evening.. May God bless pic.twitter.com/apkzSJNkdH— Yeen Rahman (@yeen71) August 15, 2019
