No flood today


On 17 January rain falls very heavily and continuously inundating some important parts of the Indonesian capital city of Jakarta.

Many parts of the city's downtown area like the Presidential Palace, the HI Roundabout & Fountain, were inundated that President SBY's meeting with Argentinian President Mme. was postpone for a few hours.

Due to this fact, the Governor of Jakarta Joko Widodo has announced Jakarta under state of emergency for ten days until 27 January 2013 which is today. One factor that influenced Jokowi in making such decision was the weather forecast made by the Meteorology and Geophysical Agency (BMKG)  that the rain will fall heavily and continuously and shall reach the highest level on 27 January 2013.

Thank God when I woke up this morning the sun was shining very bright and it goes on the whole day until dusk.

I pray to God so that Jakarta shall not be inundated again like last week.

Fortunately nature deceived weather forecasters. Let's hope the torrential rains season will be over now.

@Colson,
We can only hope and pray that mother nature would calm down.

Could be on the improve. The Aussie city of Brisbane won't get the floods of two years ago, so things while bad enough, won't be as bad as first thought. Perhaps Jakarta will be the same. Good luck Harry!
