What do we get when king tide and continuous heavy rain for days occur concurrently? A recipe for flood of course. Around this time of the year, low lying areas are very prone to flooding due to the heavy monsoon rain. While (heavy) flood can be bad for the economy and dangerous to lives, the irony is that, to some extent, it can be fun to watch and experience. That just happened in my hometown, Lundu, a few hours ago. If the heavy downpour continues for another day when king tide is at it's highest point, the flood is going to worsen.
Having being told that the town is flooding, I rushed down with my camera ready to take some shots. Below are what I managed to capture before it became dark and started to rain again. If the flood worsens, this will be updated but hopefully that will not happen.
Note: Notice carefully the third picture where there seems to be a shadowy figure cycling. There was never an instant that someone cycling was passing by when the picture was shot and I did not notice it until the picture was uploaded into my computer. At no instance was the picture doctored. It is up to you to believe.
At this stage it may look exciting but should the water level goes up, it will sure cause havoc and can be dangerous.
Honestly, this picture is not doctored. Notice the shadowy figure of a person cycling right in front of my camera. I did not see anyone cycling in front of me when this picture was taken. Whatever it is, I thought it is worth sharing with you readers. Unexplained occurrence(s) do happened when least expected.
