SOME low-lying areas in the country are experiencing flash floods following continuous rain. The worst-hit area is part of the main road along Jalan Batang Mitus–Bebuloh in the Tutong District.
Water has reached up to a knee-deep level making the road inaccessible for small cars. According to a resident from Kg Batang Mitus, the flash flood made him drive an extra mile through Jalan Lamunin just to send his children to school last Saturday morning.
He said the area gets flooded especially with continuous rain.
Residents blame the poor monsoon drainage system. Some of the houses are also affected by the flash flood. Residents are hoping that the relevant authorities will solve the problem before it gets any worse.
