Heavy rains over the island of Java, ongoing since Thursday, April 9, have caused widespread flooding and landslides, affecting more than 25,000 people as of Wednesday, April 15. Over 7500 houses have been flooded, alongside several major roads. The Tuban, Lamongan, and Bungo regencies have been particularly badly affected.

Heavy rains are expected to continue over the island until Friday, April 17, with especially heavy rains and thunderstorms expected over East Java.

Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
