Heavy rain and howling wind like never seen before ripped through major roads in the city, uprooting trees and sent zinc awnings flying last evening.
Even during the enforcement of Movement Control Order (MCO), also known as Restricted Movement Order (RMO), the Ipoh City Council’s Landscape Department worked along with the Civil Defence Unit (Angkatan Pertahanan Awam) and Fire & Rescue Department (BOMBA) to remove the fallen trees, clearing the roads for the safety of users.
Among the affected locations were Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Lebuh Harimau and Taman Canning. Drivers are advised to take extra precaution when using these roads to avoid untoward incidents.
Rest in peace, my cashew tree.
