Northern Indonesia, specifically the Sumatra Island, has been experiencing severe weather conditions since 9 June, with heavy rainfall, strong winds, and thunderstorms wreaking havoc in the region. The adverse weather has led to several incidents related to powerful winds, resulting in casualties and widespread destruction.

According to the ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADINet), the situation remains critical as of 12 June. In the Deli Serdang Regency of North Sumatra Province, one fatality has been reported, along with two injuries. Additionally, five people have been displaced, and 53 houses have sustained significant damage. The nearby Langkat Regency in the same province has also witnessed approximately 140 people affected by the devastating weather.

Forecasters from the region's meteorological authorities have issued a warning for the next 24 hours. They predict that the Sumatra Island will continue to experience heavy rainfall and strong winds. This forecast raises concerns about the potential for further damage and risks to the local population.

Authorities are urging residents in the affected areas to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety. It is advised to stay updated with official weather updates and heed any evacuation orders or safety advisories issued by local authorities.

The government and relevant agencies are closely monitoring the situation and are prepared to provide immediate assistance and relief efforts to affected individuals and communities. The priority remains on ensuring the safety and well-being of the people in the region.

As the severe weather conditions persist, it is essential for residents to stay informed and follow the guidance provided by authorities to mitigate the risks associated with the ongoing storms.
