Jakarta, Thursday 17 January 2013
After just fell asleep for a little over 2 hours, starting at 5: 30 in the morning I awake. Anxiety began to overshadow will flood due to heavy rain still falling, rain had started to fall from around 7: 30 in the morning. Sewer water had almost reached the surface streets. Immediately I packed up the strong home furnishings, moving, lifting and so forth.
Right only, 7: 30 a.m. the water has begun to inundate the entrance terrace home and gradually inundate the living room. I could just let go and try to enjoy this situation.
The idea occurred to try to document the situation of flooding in residential neighborhood. As soon as I took the umbrella and wearing a raincoat.
Only in less than 2 hours it turns the water already inundate almost the entire housing estate.
It looks like the flooding this year was greater than in 2007. The height of the water in this housing between 30-60 cm.The position of the high road became the favorite place to park a motorcycle or car so that spared from the flooding
Submerged the school were closed, students are encouraged to go back to their respective homes
For adults the flood are a problem and need special attention. But not for children. They make the flood as entertainment and where they play.
Almost 2 hours I am around the housing estate where I live. Flooding in the area is not too large. There are still many other areas in Jakarta who experience greater flood.
The phenomenon of flooding did it complexity. Many were anxious but some are greeted with glee. One thing that is important is to try to deal with all of this with a smile
So my brief documentation. Hopefully this ends fast flood and disaster-stricken communities swamped always get the blessing and mercy of God
