Jakarta Flood

The Indonesian capital Jakarta has been heavily hit by flooding, when the 13 rivers flowing into the city from south and west could not contain the strong monsoon rains any longer. News reports say that more than 18.000 citizens have lost their homes, and that the declared state of emergency will be upheld as continued downpours are preticted for the next couple of days.

To everyone in the affected areas: Stay safe!
