Recalling the incident, engineer M.Logeswaran, 28, said when he arrived at the parking lot about 7.45 pm his car was only about 40 per cent covered and he decided to try and move it.
"As I was moving it I heard a very loud sound and saw more earth sliding down in front of the car. I got out and ran," he said adding that he had bought the car just two months ago.
Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue director Khirudin Rahman confirmed that the nine cars were completely buried and one of them was also damaged by a fallen tree.
A Bernama survey of the area at 11 pm found that there was still soil movements due to the heavy rains.
