Facebook user May Tan Kimbuay shared a video of a lift roof leaking torrents of water. It is unclear where or when the incident happened, but the video was uploaded on the eve of Christmas.

The heavy rain on 24 Dec not only caused many flash floods and was the reason for several accidents, but it also caused flooding in MRT trains (https://theindependent.sg.sg/heavy-rain-on-eve-of-christmas-causes-flooding-in-mrt-trains-and-many-parts-of-singapore).

The residents of the block said that they were worried that the water leakage could pose an electrical hazard. The lifts in the block also malfunctioned at least twice a month and overloaded even when there were just two passengers in it.

The MP for the area, Dr Lam Pin Min, said that HDB is following up on the matter and is looking to install canopies to stop the rain from entering the lift. He also said that his town council will inform cleaners to clear away excess water.Follow us on Social Media
