Clothings at 50-70% Discount

I came upon this bundle of clothings that are sold at 50-70%discount by the India Street sidewalk. The reason the shopkeepers here disposed them cheaply was due to the heavy rains and high tide that brought in the river waters creeping into the shophouses thus drenching the clothings . The clothings that got drenched were disposed by selling them at fantastic discounts. Last month Kuching received its highest rainfall in two days, equivalent to about 400 mm of rain. The amount of rain that Kuching normally received in a year ( over many years now) is only 300 mm. Well you can imagine how wet was Kuching when the equivalent of a year's rain was soaked into two days.
