Had the heavy rain continued, a flash flood would have ensured in the immediate area.

A coffeeshop in Jurong also experienced flooding due to the heavy downpour, with water gushing out of the drains under the tables and chairs.

The outdoor dining area at Coffee United (Blk 496) experienced flooding this afternoon amidst exceptionally heavy rainfall. I observed both drainage and surface runoff issues, and will work with Town Council and agencies to solve these.
