Heavy rains caused flooding in Singapore's central shopping district on 16 June 2010 (Wed) and snarled traffic throughout the island. Shopping Malls along Orchard Road like Lucky Plaza, Liat Towers, Tong Building and Delfi Orchard were affected by the flood. The flood had caused some shopping mall and car park basements to be submerged in the water. Rescuers had to pull out about 70 passengers from cars and buses, as flooding shut down Orchard Road, no one was injured. The National Environment Agency (NEA) reported that more than 100 mm of rain fell within a two-hour period of “intense heavy rain”. The Public Utilities Board (PUB), however, attributed the cause of the floods to a blocked culvert – a drain that diverts water.
