Changing Weather Pattern

Changing weather pattern has indeed affected many countries throughout the world. Our country, Malaysia was not spared. Yesterday a freak storm, strong winds and heavy downpour caused chaos in Kuala Lumpur and parts of Selangor. More than 100 trees were uprooted, wreaking havoc and damaging properties. Few days back Kajang, Selangor was unexpectedly hit by floods. What else more? According to the news today, Malaysians have been advised to brace for the worst, as flash floods could occur even in areas not usually known to be flood-prone. Throughout my life have not seen such weather conditions in Malaysia. Will it get  worsen year after year? It seems yes .....
