The Head of the BNPB Disaster Information and Communication Data Center, Agus Wibowo, also invited the residents to actively report the occurrence of floods.

    "To facilitate the mapping and outreach of the field team through," Agus said, in a written statement, Tuesday, February 25, adding that the public can immediately monitor the flood through the site.

    Meanwhile, residents who need evacuation assistance can contact the call centers at 112 for the Regency / City Regional Government, 115 for Basarnas, 119 for the Ministry of Health Gadar, 110 for Police, 113 for firefighters, and 021-51010-112 for BNPB.
