A minute later, PUB added that flash floods had occurred at Craig Road near Outram Park MRT station, also affecting both lanes.

At 1.28pm, PUB said that the flash floods at Commonwealth Lane had subsided.

Later at 2.06pm, it reported that the flooding at Craig Road had also receded.

The National Environment Agency had warned via a tweet at about 9am that thundery showers are expected over many areas in the late morning and early afternoon.

PUB also issued several advisories listing areas with high flood risks, which include Sungai Pandan Kechil near the National University of Singapore and Tanjong Pagar Road.
