Event

Heavy rainfall and flooding have been reported in the Greater Jakarta Area on Friday, April 26 morning (local time). At least 17 neighborhoods in the capital region to the south and east of the capital were affected, including Lenteng Agung, Pengadegan, Srengseng Sawah and Rawajati in South Jakarta, as well as Cawang, Bidara Cina, Balekambang and Kampung Melayu in East Jakarta. The severe weather has displaced thousands of people as of Friday, notably in the Cawang and Cililitan neighborhoods. The Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has advised residents that further flooding over the coming hours as water levels continue to rise, threatening several area dams.

Further flooding and associated disruptions, including road closures and infrastructure damage, are expected. 

Advice

Individuals in affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions prior to setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. It is important to note that that walking or driving through floodwaters can be dangerous; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
