I don’t intend to cause alarm but I think I need to share this with everyone.
Rumours are surfacing about a freak winter storm that is expected to hit the Kuala Lumpur city centre on Friday, 20 November 2009 at around 7pm.
Being near the equator, KL has never experienced such a cold weather phenomenon and residents used to the hot and humid weather are warned to take serious precautions.
Reliable sources think that there are reasons to believe these rumours following some unusual weather-related events that many parts of the world have experienced in recent history.
Those who have never experienced extreme cold weather are advised to stick close to one another for support. I suggest reading this article on How to Survive Being Stranded in Snow and other similar ones you can find easily on the internet.
As I personally know some of these sources, I will send out further notices as we get closer to the anticipated event.
Remember, mark 20 November 2009 in your diaries. In such an occurrence, there is safety in numbers so stay close to one another, especially after office hours!
p/s: Well, of course I'm not planning to make everybody panic about this, but there is thing that make me consider this alert to be shared. I got below pictures few years ago, a weird snow event traced at scorching desert (yes desert!) and its look real to me. Just browse.
Well if the alert true, what that mean? Yes, we have to wait until 20th November. I believe the weatherman will justify that event, as they justify 'the fog' (jerebu) and all.
Yeah, lets wait.
