More videos and photos are coming in from ordinary people about the Orchard Road flood. The last time this area was flooded was 26 years ago. No wonder the young people are so tickled by what is happening. Here’s a video that’s been shared on Youtube. At times like these social media is really useful bringing us the unedited news faster than conventional media.

The irony is that not many people know that Wendy’s has opened a new branch at Orchard Road, but it has major publicity now. It’s newest branch, which just opened 2 days ago is located at Liat Towers and had to evacuate its very first breakfast patrons as the muddy waters rose to almost waist level.
I love Wendy’s so I hope it opens soon after dealing with it’s rain damage. I also hope there’s no second incident of flooding, which might be a high probability, if the cause is the weather or some structural problem that has yet to be uncovered.
