Central Indonesia, in particular Java Island, has been experiencing heavy rainfall since 19 February, resulting in severe floods that have caused damage and forced evacuations. This report aims to provide an update on the situation as of 22 February.

Impact:

The ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADINet) has reported that the floods have affected a significant number of people and households in the region. As of 22 February, there have been around 60 evacuations, with more than 750 affected houses and approximately 3,000 affected people across the Bekasi Regency in West Java. Meanwhile, the Majalengka Regency has seen nearly 400 people affected and almost 100 houses damaged.

Forecast: According to weather reports, heavy rainfall and locally very heavy rainfall are expected across the entire Java Island over the next 24 hours. This could potentially exacerbate the current flooding situation and cause further damage to infrastructure and property.

Conclusion:

The heavy rainfall and resulting floods in Central Indonesia have caused significant damage and forced evacuations. The situation remains critical, with more rainfall expected in the coming days. It is crucial that relevant authorities and organizations take necessary measures to mitigate the effects of the disaster, including emergency response and relief efforts, as well as long-term measures to enhance resilience to such events in the future.
