The remains of collapsed houses fill the Doyo Baru housing complex in Sentani, Papua, which was hit by a flash flood on 19 March 2019. The Social Affairs Ministry recorded that that the number 350 houses were severely damaged by the flood, while 174 other houses were inundated.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS – Hydrometeorological disasters like floods and landslides usually occur from the year-end to the beginning of the following year in many regions. Several regions are currently organizing disaster preparation measures amid the still traumatized survivors of previous disasters.

The measures include disseminating information on disaster risks, mapping disaster areas, setting up disaster command posts, holding disaster drills and organizing supplies and emergency funds.
