Floodwater has inundated Kebon Jeruk, West Jakarta, hours after rain hit the city on Monday, forcing residents to secure their electronics to prevent them from being ruined.

The flood was seen along Jl. Arjuna, near the Jakarta-Merak toll road and residents’ houses in neighborhood unit (RT) 4 and community unit (RW) 4.

A resident, Hendra, 40, who was securing his belongings, complained that the city administration often called the flood a puddle.

“This is a flood, not a puddle. It is insane that the city administration calls it a puddle,” Hendra said as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.

The flood also caused traffic congestion in the area.

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) has predicted that the rainy season would peak in January and February next year. (cal)
