A local bread shop was forced to throw away a large number of its bread products yesterday after a section of the roof at Redhill MRT station began leaking during a heavy downpour yesterday.
The incident took place in the afternoon while the majority of Singapore was struck with heavy rains.
One employee at the bread shop said that the water flowing from the leaking roof was like a waterfall. Other employees of the establishment had to rush to keep their bread and pastries to avoid losing all of their stock.
However, business was still affected for the shop because the bakery’s entrance was “blocked” by the pouring cascades of water preventing customers from venturing into the bread shop.
The bread shop was not the only outlet affected. Commuters entering and exiting the gantries of the MRT station were also seen holding up umbrellas to shield themselves from another leak in the ceiling.
