Floods Submerge 11 Districts in Demak as 6 Dams Burst

18 March 2024 16:37 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaHigh-intensity rains that lashed Central Java on March 16 caused six dams to burst, flooding several districts in Demak.

The Wulan River embankment, which is located on the border of Demak and Kudus Regencies, also broke again on March 17. Previously, the embankment broke after the flood in early February 2024.

The Demak Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) reported on March 18 that as many as 89 villages in 11 subdistricts had been inundated with 30-80 centimeters of water.

Abdul Muhari, the spokesman for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), said that the flooded areas included the sub-districts of Demak, Karangtengah, Sayung, Mranggen, Wonosalam, Karanganyar, Karangawen, Kebonagung, Guntur, Dempet, and Gajah.

“A total of 93,149 people were affected and 22,725 of them were displaced. The Demak Regency Government has set up evacuation points at 45 locations,” Muhari said in a written statement on March 18.

The Demak BPBD remains on alert. According to the agency’s official, the water level in the city reached the adult's knees this morning, and the agency was still evacuating the people in tandem with the personnel from the Indonesian Military (TNI) and the National Police throughout Central Java, as well as volunteers.
