KUALA LUMPUR: Flash floods hit several areas in the Klang Valley following a late afternoon downpour that began about 4pm.

Among the affected areas were Persiaran Kewajipan, USJ, Kampung Dato Harun to Jalan Templer, Persiaran Kuala Selangor, Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) near PJS toll, Puchong Jaya to IOI Mall.

According to the Malaysian Highway Authority, traffic is moving slow from PJS to Federal Highway and Puchong Jaya to IOI Mall due to flash floods.

At Persiaran Kewajipan, the flash flood is causing congestion in both directions between The Summit and the Subang Jaya police headquarters.
