TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Head of the Jakarta Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) Isnawa Adji on Wednesday declared the capital city is free from floods following Tuesday’s heavy rainfall which caused mass floodings in a number of areas. 

"The Jakarta BPBD notes that currently, the floods have completely receded," he said in a written statement on October 5.

On Tuesday, 31 subdistricts and six major streets in Jakarta were inundated. Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan also made a visit to the floodgates on Jalan Kemang Raya, South Jakarta. Flooding continues in nine subdistricts until Wednesday morning at 06:00.
