KUALA LUMPUR: A freak storm uprooted several trees and caused traffic congestion in some parts of the city yesterday.

In Jalan 29/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas, a huge tree damaged two cars and fallen trees on Jalan Setiakasih and Jalan Beringin caused a massive jam.

Five City Hall emergency unit officers took about an hour to clear the debris and the situation returned to normal by 6.30pm.

No one was hurt in the 4pm incident.

In Petaling Jaya, flash floods were reported at SK(T) Vivekananda in Jalan Templer and at the Rothmans roundabout.

A couple of classrooms at the school, as well as its front gate and field were affected.

A parent said floods are a perennial problem at the school whenever there is heavy rain.
