BMKG Warnings Floods in RI Region Next Week, Check Location News – 1 hour ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – BMKG said a number of regions in Indonesia have the potential to experience increased rainfall next week.

BMKG climatological analysis as of Dasarian II November 2023 shows that as much as 20% of Indonesia’s territory is entering the rainy season.

Some areas currently experiencing the rainy season are Aceh, North Sumatra, most of Riau, most of West Sumatra, a small part of Bengkulu, a small part of Jambi, a large part of South Sumatra, a large part of Bangka Belitung, a small part of Lampung, a small part of Banten, a small part of Java. West, central Central Java, parts of West Kalimantan, parts of Central Kalimantan, a small part of North Kalimantan, northern parts of South Kalimantan, parts of central Central Sulawesi, parts of West Papua and parts of central Papua.


The significant increase in rainfall in several regions of the Republic of Indonesia is caused by several atmospheric phenomena, as follows:

1. The Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) phenomenon, which is currently starting to enter the western part of Indonesia and is predicted to continue to be active around the Indonesian territory until the First Period of December 2023, can contribute to an increase in the growth of rain clouds in the Indonesian region.

2. Another regional scale phenomenon is the Equatorial Rossby (ER) wave which has been observed to be active in parts of Indonesia, especially in the central and eastern parts until the end of the III period in November 2023.

3. Strengthening of the Asian monsoon, as can be seen from indications of strengthening upper layer winds from the South China Sea region to more than 25 knots (47 km/hour).

4. The emergence of Tropical Cyclone Seed 99W in the North Natuna Sea and Cyclonic Circulation in western Sumatra and the Karimata Strait which triggered the formation of confluence areas and slowing winds. The 99W Tropical Cyclone Seed has a maximum wind speed of up to 20 knots (37 km/hour) and air pressure at its center reaches 1006 hPa with the system moving towards the West.

5. Positive sea surface temperature anomalies in the South China Sea, Karimata Strait, Java Sea, Makassar Strait and Sulawesi Sea areas of up to 3 ᵒC are a source of water vapor in the formation of rain clouds.

Based on these conditions, some areas that need to be watched for the potential for moderate-heavy rain are as follows:

1. North Sumatra Coast (Pesisir Kec. Medan Belawan, Medan Marelan, Medan Labuhan) on 23 November – 01 December 2023

BMKG recommendation

Relevant parties are expected to make preparations including:

1. Ensure infrastructure capacity and water resource management systems are ready to anticipate increased rainfall.

2. Organize the environment by not throwing rubbish carelessly and not cutting slopes or uncontrolled felling of trees and carrying out a more massive reforestation program.

3. Prune fragile tree branches and twigs and strengthen stands/poles, as well as billboards/billboards so that they do not collapse in strong winds.

4. Intensify socialization, education and literacy more massively to increase understanding and awareness of the Regional Government, community and related parties in preventing/reducing the risk of hydrometeorological disasters (floods, landslides, flash floods, strong winds, tornadoes and high waves).

5. Further intensify coordination, synergy and communication between related parties for hydrometrological disaster preparedness.

6. Continue to monitor weather development information and extreme weather early warnings from BMKG, in more detail and detail for each sub-district throughout Indonesia, through:
