SHAH ALAM : Dozens of cars and motorcycles parked near the back entrance of the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) were damaged following a flash flood here on Thursday.
The flood occurred at the parking lot of UiTM International Centre (UIC) after a two-hour downpour from about 11am.
A worker who only wanted to be known as Siti, 46, said the water rose to knee level at about 12.30pm.
"It receded about two hours later," she said, adding that she saw several people moving their vehicles to higher ground moments earlier.
A 25-year-old student who only wanted to be known as “Amy”, said she was away for an industrial training in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, and had the misfortune of parking her car at the flooded spot.
"When I came back, my car had taken in water and could not start," she said.
