The flash flood at Boon Lay Way on the afternoon of Nov 28 subsided within 20 minutes, said PUB.

In a Facebook post at 6.47pm the same day, the national water agency said its Quick Response Team was there to render assistance.

PUB added: "The heaviest rainfall of 104.1mm was recorded in western Singapore from 3.05pm to 4.20pm. This amount corresponds to about half of Singapore’s average monthly rainfall in November."

Several Stompers shared viral videos of the flooding, but at least one is fake.

Can you tell which one?

On Nov 16, the Meteorological Service Singapore said for the rest of November, the monsoon is forecast to bring more thundery showers to Singapore.

"On most days during this period, short-duration thundery showers are expected over parts of the island in the afternoon, extending into the evening on a few days. The thundery showers could be widespread and heavy on some of these days," said the weather service.

"The total rainfall for the second fortnight of November 2023 is forecast to be above average over most parts of the island."
