A series of floods struck four areas in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, on Tuesday evening.
“The floods were caused by an overflow of the Bukit Gading Raya Boulevard River […] starting at 8 a.m. Now, [the water] is being pumped so it will hopefully recede soon,” said Ade, an officer who handles West Kelapa Gading infrastructure and facilities.
North Jakarta Economy and Development assistant Suroto said the inundated areas included Jl. Kelapa Hybrida, Jl. Pegangsaan Dua and Jl. Bukit Gading Raya.
Some areas were inundated with floodwater as high as 40 centimeters, kompas.com reported.
