PUB TAKING ACTION AGAINST CONTRACTOR FOR CAUSING THOMSON FLOOD

National water agency, PUB, will be taking action against the contractor of the MRT station construction site, Sato Kogyo, for causing the flash floods that hit Upper Thomson Road on Christmas Eve.

According to the reports, an investigation taken by the PUB indicated that the construction of the nearby Upper Thomson MRT Station had affected the public drainage system, which in turn caused the flood to happen. A temporary diversion drain constructed by the company within the worksite was found to be undersized. PUB was also not informed of the temporary drainage system. PUB had ordered the contractor to carry out rectification works immediately

Can businesses that suffer losses due to the floods claim against the contractor too?

THANKS SCDF FOR RESCUING US FROM THE FLOODS WITH A BIG SMILE

You can see the devastation of the flood. Things happened real quickly. Within 10mins, water was rising rapidly. Thank you to the SBS bus driver uncle [Bus No. 252] who took the wise choice of not driving through [for the safety of everyone]. Uncle kept apologizing to us, but I reassured him that this was not his fault. Thank you to the SCDF guys who came to check on everyone aboard the bus. One of them [a Malay officer] even lighthearted said this to the uncle when requesting him to wear the safety float vest, "Uncle must be safe ok? 我爱你.."

S'POREAN 'ATTACKED' BY PINOY NETIZENS FOR SAYING FILIPINOS FLOOD ORCHARD ROAD

These over sensitive pinoys were very unhappy when a Singaporean, Mr Seet, exclaimed "What happen to orchard? First the flood of pinoy and now this! Orchard is no longer the heart of singapore..." Instead, hordes of pinoys converged in the comments section and told him to watch his words. More and more pinoys arrived and started to scold him. This is very unreasonable because if the Singaporean has any grudge with pinoys, there are worse things he would have said.
