Several areas in Singapore were flooded recently, with Bukit Timah as one of the hardest hit ... although floods are rare in Singapore, with weather so unpredicatable, it's good to have comprehensive motor insurance that provides coverage against floods. Damages could run from $10,000 to $50,000 depending on the extent of damages ... and how deep the car was submerged into.

SINGAPORE - It was too late when restaurant manager Kesab Limbu got to the Sixth Avenue Centre's basement car park: Within minutes, floodwaters gushing through small ventilation sills turned the area into a "swimming pool".

"The water rose quickly to my neck," said Mr Kesab, who got out quickly after failing to start his van. Three cars remained trapped in the "swimming pool" yesterday evening as contractors were called in to drain the water out and restore disrupted phone lines.

Similar flooding scenes were repeated at various spots over the Bukit Timah area early yesterday afternoon. Intense rain resulted in the equivalent of 115 Olympic-size pools of water being drained into the Bukit Timah 1st Diversion Canal - which separates Bukit Timah Road and Dunearn Road - causing it to overflow, said the PUB.
