Indonesia, Flooding in North Penajam Paser Regency

13:45 Feb 18 2020 North Penajam Paser Regency, East Kalimantan

NORTH PASER LOAN - The flood that struck the Bukit Subur village and Riko Village, Penajam District, Penajam Paser Utara Regency (PPU), East Kalimantan has receded, as reported by the Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) of North Penajam Paser Regency, Tuesday (18 / 2) at 23.50 West Indonesia Time.

Previously reported floods with a water level of up to 1.9 meters due to high rainfall and tides have flooded the settlements that inhabited 104 families / 336 people in Bukit Subur Village and 11 families / 43 people in Riko Village RT 04.

The flooding was also reportedly cut off the bridge of the residents' walkway because the water current eroded the foundation buffer so that the two- and four-wheeled vehicles could not cross.

Until now, residents are assisted by a joint team from BPBD PPU, District Team, PPU Police Sector Team, Danramil Penajam, Village / Kelurahan Officers, PP Satpol Team, Bhabinkamtibmas, Babinsa and Tagana to work together to clean up the remaining mud and material that is flooded in the homes of residents.

The obstacle experienced by the field team is the difficulty of accessing telecommunications signals so that it complicates the process of reporting the results of periodic assessments. Until this news was released, there were no reports of casualties and material losses were still in the process of further data collection.
