Meanwhile, a SilverCab taxi had not made a move. A passerby waited at the traffic light, presumably to wait his turn to cross the road, despite the fact that there was a flood in front of him.

The water was flowing down towards the cars due to the slope, and branches that were broken off in the landslide could be seen moving towards the cars too.

In their caption, the member of the public mentions that this took place in Bukit Gombak, the subzone of Bukit Batok.

A few netizens were worried about how the cars caught in the flood would fare.

Meanwhile, some others chalked the cause of the flood down to a landslide, which was likely to have occurred due to the heavy rain scattered in Singapore throughout the last few days.

Landslides are brought about by changes in a slope’s natural stability and can occur after heavy rain, earthquakes, droughts, or volcanic eruptions.
