The Jakarta Post
Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has instructed the capital’s mayors and district heads to monitor the possibility of falling trees in their areas during the rainy season.
“If such a thing occurs, it should be handled quickly. I have instructed mayors and district heads to deploy their personnel to handle it as soon as possible,” Anies said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com.
He also called on residents to actively participate should they find fallen trees around their neighborhood or blocking roads.
“If residents find any fallen trees, do report it immediately, so it can be handled,” Anies added.
On Monday, heavy rain hit the capital and toppled several trees in South Jakarta.
In Cidodol, Kebayoran Lama, a tree fell against a utility pole, while on Jl. Peninggaran Barat III in the same subdistrict, several trees fell onto a car parked near a school.
A tree that fell onto power lines also disrupted commuter trains operating between Kebayoran in South Jakarta and Pondok Ranji in South Tangerang, Banten on Monday. (wnd)
