3 floods in a month. The last one woke me up in my sleep.

Anyone affected?

There are a lot of pictures on STOMP. Here are some of the latest:

And some from the pretty serious Orchard Road flood last month that had me canceling meetings:

http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/st...52/4124/394710

And there's an ongoing debate on who's "fault" is it, from various government departments to the newly built marina barrage to act of God.

Coming from a country where flooding is ... normal and almost cyclical, do you think Singapore residents are over-reacting? Or just ignorant (especially people who stay in low lying areas)?

I guess they should stop the blaming game. Heal themselves and learn from the mistake. Thank the wrong-doer that this thing will never happen again instead of punishing him.

Well, that sounds wrong but then again, it has 2 sides to it. Punish wrong doers so to save yourself and teach others not to do it again.
or
thank him for making the mistake so that we all know not to make it in the future. After all, it has happened and we all know he sure feel bad for it if he is etiquette enough.
