Ular main air banjir

Hati-hati mereka dikawasan dinaiki air, pun keluar kerana kawasan mereka pun melimpah air.

Meanwhile, a second python emerged from a drain near Setapak Central mall on the same day

Bernama TV shared a video of onlookers watching as a snake was spotted near a van in Setapak.

It is very rare for pythons to kill humans, although not completely impossible. According to National Geographic, humans are not normally part of these snakes' prey.

There are past cases where pythons strangled humans but it only happens if the snake is hungry enough. However, it is an extremely rare situation.

The best thing you can do is to just call the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department if the snake is in a place that seems dangerous.

Vehicles were seen in knee-deep waters after heavy rains led to flash floods in several areas of KL yesterday, 10 September

About 100 families were displaced by the floods, which affected mainly five areas: Lebuh Ampang, Jalan Raja Alang (Kampung Baru), Lorong Air Leleh (Setapak), Jalan Gurney, and Jalan San Ah Wing (Semarak).

The Ministry of Federal Territories said that it will keep a lookout on the situation and take into account the irrigation and mitigation systems in the city.
