Landslides and flooding caused by heavy rains have been reported on Thursday, February 20, across Sumatra, Java, and Kalimantan, ongoing since the week prior. According to authorities, one person has died and several others have been wounded or reported missing. Flooding has affected thousands of properties and caused severe transportation disruptions.

Heavy rain, thunderstorms, and strong winds are forecast over Sumatra, Java, and northern Borneo for Friday, February 21. Associated transportation disruptions are therefore expected to continue.


Individuals in affected areas in Indonesia are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate lingering transportation and business disruptions, confirm flight reservations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
