Ask any Singaporean would they imagine flooding at Orchard Road before the mighty rainfall submerged Singapore's most famous street yesterday.
I lived in Singapore for 10 years at Cairnhill Road, a stone throw away from Orchard Road and I would have sworn to anyone who asked me that Orchard Road would never flood.The only place that I can remember get flooded after torrential rain coupled by high tide was along Bukit Timah Road.Otherwise, most parts of Singapore are high and dry.
Adjacent areas, Scotts Road, Cairn Hill Road, Cairnhill Circus and Mt Elizabeth must have been spared being on higher ground.
Most efficient and capable Singapore got caught out by "act of God"
As they say "God's mill grind slow but sure" and "man proposes, God disposes"
