Heavy Downpour result in parts of labuan town being under water

LABUAN: Rainwater accumulated in the low-lying areas of the Labuan town after hours of downpour Saturday night.

The heavy downpour resulted in waterlogging, traffic jams and blocked stretches throughout the town and some villages.

Waterlogging paralysed regular vehicular flow and pedestrian movement around the town, where the water rose slightly above the ankle-level.
