The Jakarta-Cikampek toll road toward Jakarta is flooded near Kilometer Marker (KM) 9 in Bekasi, West Java, on Tuesday (25/2/2020) morning. Floods brought traffic to a standstill in many parts of Greater Jakarta following heavy rain.

The flood that hit Jakarta, Tangerang and Bekasi on Tuesday reminds us of the similar massive flooding on Jan.1 that continued on to the next day. Heavy rain on Monday night (24/2/2020) led to severe inundation in several areas in the three cities and disrupted commuter line services.

Flood victims traumatized by the New Year flooding were forced to relive their nightmare on Tuesday. Once again, they had to flee their homes and suffer from material loss.
