Singapore Havoc - Breaking News

According to Singapore Straits Times this morning,
almost 100 mm of rain fell within a two-hour period from about 9 am to 11 am. 'The amount of rainfall is approximately more than 60 per cent of the average monthly rainfall for June'.
The worst-hit area was the Orchard Road and Scotts Road intersection, with large stretches from Paterson Road - where Ion Orchard and Wheelock Towers are - to Ngee Ann City submerged in nearly half a metre of flood waters.
This photo is from the top of Orchard Road at Cafe Flora taken 15 years ago. This morning we would have been sitting in the middle of a devastating river.
Thinking of our friends in Singapore (DNV employees and Susie with family) we share one of the great moment from the wonderful time we had in Asia Pacific.. From the East cost eating pepper crabs, chili prawns, drunken prawns, fish cantonese style, "flied lice", lemon chicken and all the other fantastic dishes. Yes, we will return once more if possible.
But dry up your streets first.
