BNPB Asks Year-end Holiday Travelers to Always Check Weather … – Tempo.co English

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesperson Abdul Muhari encouraged people traveling for year-end holidays to always check the weather forecast in order to be aware of potential hydrometeorological disasters during the rainy season.
Muhari mentioned three areas of concern as they are densely populated, namely central to west areas of Java, central to south areas of Sulawesi, and eastern Papua or precisely central to south areas.
“This should be a common vigilance for people who may be spending time with their families in the new year. Don’t forget to check the weather forecast,” he said on Monday, December 19, 2022.
According to him, Indonesia has now entered the third week of December, so based on the normal monsoon, the country has entered the rainy season.
People are also asked to be vigilant about the potential for hydrometeorological disasters even though many disasters have occurred between October and November 2022. “We have to stay alert for [potential disasters] from January to February 2023 which may be the peak of the rainy season,” Muhari emphasized.
BNPB also urged local governments to prepare for disaster handling and mitigation, especially in areas that are prone to flooding and landslides, such as West Java, Central Java, and East Java.
From December 12 to 18, 2022, BNPB recorded that 45 disasters that hit Indonesia were dominated by hydrometeorological disasters, consisting of 22 floods, 14 extreme weather events, eight landslides, and one earthquake.
