(Ed: Firstly, Punggol residents, it’s “Ponding”, not “Flooding”.)
But on a serious note, an early morning thunderstorm has raised a storm in Punggol.
This, after rain poured into several homes in the newly-built Punggol Waterway Terraces BTO flats.
Homeowners complained of “flooding”, which damaged their furniture and flooring.
Rainwater appeared to be able to enter the flat despite the doors balcony doors being shut.
This incident is the latest to shake public confidence in new flats built by the HDB, with homeowners in several new developments complaining of workmanship flaws and defects in their homes.
In parliament yesterday (13 Jul), Minister of State for National Development Desmond Lee defended the quality of DBSS and BTO flats.
