Kind souls pull fallen tree to clear road and redirect traffic during heavy rain at Orchard

Embedded image permalink

A few good Samaritans helped brighten up a gloomy day after a huge tree fell near Orchard Central and blocked part of Orchard Road during a heavy downpour two days ago (Dec 11).

Stomper Ferhan saw a group of about six students trying to pull the fallen tree onto the side of the road in the rain.

A netizen has also taken to social media to show what happened after the massive tree fell.

The Straits Times

Heavy showers, floods hit parts of Singapore

Accompanied by gusty winds, the downpours pushed water levels in drains and canals close to the brink, with flooding reported in towns, including Ang Mo Kio, Buangkok, Hougang and Yio Chu Kang.

Between 4pm and 5pm, the PUB issued alerts of high flood risk in six areas: Seletar Road/Neram Road; Cactus Road; Tampines Road/Jalan Teliti; Exeter Road/Somerset Road; Chin Bee Avenue/Third Chin Bee Road; and Lorong Buangkok.
