SINGAPORE: Business at several stores in Plaza Singapura were hit by flooding on Saturday afternoon.
CapitaMalls Asia, which owns Plaza Singapura, said unusually heavy rain caused water to leak from a section of the building’s carpark.
A hotline caller said her beauty parlour was affected at about 1.30pm, and that the incident would cost her about S$2,000 in repair work and loss of revenue.
Others that were affected included supermarket giant Carrefour.
Cindy Ee, a shopowner at Plaza Singapura, said: "We had to stop whatever we were doing. Our customers were also very displeased. They were preparing to leave. Those who were supposed to come later, they had a fall while while coming into the mall."
