Sukabumi Flash Flood
A flash flood on Monday 22th September 2020 has left at least two people dead, 20 others injured and hundreds more displaced in Sukabumi, West Java.
The flooding occurred around 5 p.m. local time on Monday, after a torrential downpour in the three districts of Cicurug, Parung Kuda and Cidahu caused the Citarik and Cipeuncit rivers to overflow their banks. The flood waters were reportedly 6 meters high in certain areas.
Authorities also said that the flooding had affected at least 306 houses and several public facilities, and severely damaged six houses and 10 bridges.
Human Aid Initiative, along with our overseas partner aims to deliver emergency relief to the people affected by the flood in Sukabumi.
