Taman Kota Permai, Bukit Mertajam, Penang is just like any type of taman or housing estate. Residents lived their simple lives daily and go about their routine until about two years ago. When it rains heavily, the residents drop everything they do and turn on the red alert.

The funny thing is there is no river or huge monsoon drains which may cause such floods. So, what is causing the floods?
CJ Jimmy Leow investigates and asked the flood victims of Taman Kota Permai.
