14 provinces have been set on alert for potential extreme weather in the period December 27 – December 28, 2022. The 14 provinces include DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, West Java, DI Yogyakarta, East Java, Bante and Bali. Then West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua and West Papua.

Dwikorita asked the regional government to continue to intensify socialization and education on a more massive basis to increase, understanding regarding the prevention/reduction of the risk of hydrometeorological disasters, including floods, landslides, flash floods, strong winds, tornadoes, and high waves.

“The community using crossing transportation needs to increase their vigilance as an effort to adapt and mitigate these conditions,” she said.

During the same meeting, she said that based on the weather forecast for the period from December 29, 2022 to January 1, 2023, there is a potential for moderate to very heavy rain in the Greater Jakarta Area.
