Tackling Floods Together
Jakarta and its neighboring regions were hit by severe flooding on Tuesday after heavy rain from Monday night. More than 200 community units (RW) in Jakarta alone were inundated.
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.
