Monday October 26, 2015 12:00:00 AM - A THUNDERSTORM that hit Bandar Baru Klang (BBK) over the weekend resulted in flash floods in some areas and trees being uprooted but there were no serious injuries reported.

Residents and visitors were forced to take shelter while motorists parked their cars at the side of Persiaran Bukit Raja, which is parallel to Jalan Tiara 2, as flash floods often occurred along this stretch.

Car sales advisor Ivy Lim said the sudden thunderstorm on Saturday afternoon caused flash floods along the main stretch of Persiaran Bukit Raja opposite a car showroom.

“Strong winds brought down several large trees within the surrounding area of BBK.

“Some of the 10m trees fell across Persiaran Bukit Raja and blocked the road.

The Klang Municipal Council (MPK) used chain saws and tractors to move them,” she said adding that MPK should cut down trees that were deemed dangerous to the public and improve the drainage system to allow better water flow.

MPK acting secretary Zahrin Md Nasir said the council’s Quick Squad had removed the fallen trees at BBK.

“Most of the trees planted along Persiaran Bukit Raja do not have good depth and the roots are unable to hold well during strong winds.

“MPK’s Landscape Department will conduct an immediate tree valuation study to determine which trees need to be felled or have its branches trimmed,” he said.

He added that this plan included trees along the foot path at Persiaran Bukit Raja and nearby Klang Executive Club at Persiaran Bukit Raja 2.

On the flash floods, Zahrin said the drains could have been clogged with silt and litter.

“We will get the contractors to clean the drainage network in BBK to prevent flash floods,” he said adding that there were many eateries in BBK that could have contributed to rubbish in the drains.

On another matter, MPK corporate communications officer Norfiza Mahfiz said the council received numerous complaints on the maintenance of flowering shrubs and overgrown grass in BBK.

“With regards to poor maintenance of the shrubs, we will monitor the contractors and get them to address the problem.

“I personally have seen grass and weeds in between the flowering plants and these must be cleared.

“We must keep BBK beautiful to attract tourists,” she said.

Norfiza added that the road kerbs in BBK would also be given a new coat of paint while the red broken inter-locking tiles at foot paths around the township, would be repaired soon.
