Jakarta Flood 2013

These past few days, I experience the worst flood here since I moved to Jakarta, Indonesia 4 years ago. Many homes were flooded as high as 5 meters deep. While I’m fortunate that my house and my office nearby were not flooded, the streets and roads were flooded that I was practically trapped in the house. Many others are not so fortunate. More than 50000 people are displaced from their home. Many lives are lost.

The worst seems to be over, and hopefully so. Water has receded in most flooded area, though in some area such as Pluit, water is still 2 meters deep.

Another danger looms, with many evacuated from their homes lack basic necessities such clean water, food, baby diapers, clothes.
