1978 Singapore flood

The 1978 Singapore flood was one of the worst floods in Singapore's history. As much as 512 millimetres (20.2 in) of rain fell in just 24 hours from 2 to 3 December, 1978. Seven people were killed and more than a thousand residents were evacuated from their homes by the army and police boats from five affected areas.[1] Total damage reached S$10 million, the worst flood since the Hari Raya floods that hit the island in December 1969.
