A huge tree was uprooted around 4 am this morning and damaged the front of Pelita Nasi Kandar at Jalan Macalister, Peanang.
The famous 24-hour Indian-Muslim restaurant next to bangunan UMNO was forced to close for the day as not only was the tree an obstacle, flood waters which have yet to recede around the Komtar area made it impossible for the food operator to conduct business.

TTF was at the site and spoke to business operators who claimed that previous floods were never as bad as this.
