Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia is hit by deadly flooding. Joko Widodo, Jakarta governor declared the city a state of emergency. And it is effective until Jan. 27.
The capital city of Indonesia is home to almost 20 million people, and it is prone to heavy flooding during the rainy season. The season runs from about October to April, and is largely because of construction that leaves little room for runoff, an undeveloped sewer system, and waterways clogged with trash. The heaviest rains tend to occur in January and February.
Let’s just hope things will be better quickly.
