So, it definitely should not be downplayed as something akin to a normal, everyday occurence.
That would be a mistake and perhaps even foolhardy for the future to assume so.
Readers would recall the most tragic case of that young man crushed by a fallen tree while he was driving along Yio Chu Kang road during a rainstorm, recently. And that storm was mild compared to what occured yesterday at Sg North.
It truly was only good fortune that no one was seriously hurt while trees and branches were toppling all over.
Much was done to clear the debris obstructing traffic.
Much more is needed to be done even today from our assessment.
At Blk 127, Sg North many trees were affected.
We met other residents of the area between 1.30 -2.00 am
Most of the trees and branches were still around.
