Severe weather conditions struck Bali, Indonesia from 7th to 9th July 2023, causing widespread devastation in the region. Heavy rainfall resulted in extensive flooding, while strong winds caused damage to buildings and uprooted trees. The unstable ground combined with the heavy rain triggered numerous landslides, further exacerbating the destructive impact of the weather.

The Bali Province Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) reported a total of 78 incidents, including landslides, fallen trees, and floods across several affected areas, including Badung, Bangli, Buleleng, Denpasar, Gianyar, Jembrana, Karangasem, Klungkung, and Tabanan.

According to the ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADINet), approximately 50 homes were damaged, and around 50 individuals were displaced from their residences as a result of the severe weather. The disaster directly affected a total of 192 people, including injuries sustained by seven individuals. Tragically, five people lost their lives during the severe weather event, while one person remains missing.

Bali has previously experienced similar events, with floods and landslides causing fatalities in October 2022 following heavy rainfall. In addition, floods and mudslides in Lumajang Regency in the East Java province on the neighboring island of Java, from 6th to 7th July 2023, resulted in at least three deaths and over 1,000 people being displaced.
