Heavy rain from 29 March caused severe flooding in at least 14 villages in Central Kapuas District, Kapuas Regency, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Floodwaters up to 1.5 meters deep have left over 4,000 homes damaged and 16,234 residents affected. In addition, around 70 public buildings, 32 schools, and 11 health facilities were also flooded. Roads were flooded in around 70 locations.

Disaster authorities in the country are closely monitoring the situation and have declared an emergency in the affected areas. The Kapuas Regency Government has set up emergency accommodation and a public kitchen, while food and relief supplies have been distributed to affected residents. Emergency teams have also assisted in the evacuation of residents.

The flooding has led to an increase in waterborne diseases, and local authorities have provided health care to affected communities. The situation is still evolving, and authorities are working to provide support to those affected.

The recent flooding in Central Kalimantan is just one of the many natural disasters that Indonesia has experienced in recent years. The country is highly vulnerable to natural disasters, including floods, landslides, and earthquakes. The government has been taking steps to mitigate the impact of these disasters, including investing in early warning systems and disaster response capacity.

This recent flooding in Central Kalimantan highlights the urgent need for increased investment in disaster risk reduction and response measures in Indonesia. The government must continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of its citizens by investing in disaster management infrastructure and building the resilience of communities in disaster-prone areas.
