Fallen trees, huge rock block road


KOTA KINABALU: Several days of heavy rain caused the slope Bandaran Berjaya to give way, resulting in two trees and a huge rock rolling down the hill. The trees and rock also blocked the road, making traffic impassable.

Fortunately no casualties were reported in the incident. Residents living at the shop houses said the two trees and the rock, which was around three feet high, rolled down from the hill around 7pm on Sunday.

It was raining at the time.

The residents lodged a report with City Hall yesterday morning, while fire and rescue personnel were also at the scene for inspection. The traffic resumed later in the day.
