TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Around 1,000 houses were damaged by floods and landslides in West Nias Regency, North Sumatra, on Sunday, June 16, when heavy rains accompanied by strong winds caused the Moro'o River to overflow. The Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) of West Nias Regency recorded that 4,000 residents suffered losses from the disaster.

Abdul Muhari, head of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency's (BNPB) Disaster Data, Information and Communication Center, said there was still a possibility of heavy rains in the coming days, citing the weather forecast from the West Nias Regency Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG).

"BNPB urges the public to remain vigilant and take preventive measures such as ensuring that water channels are not blocked and avoiding disaster-prone areas," he said in a written statement on Tuesday, June 18.

The areas affected by the floods and landslides include four villages in Mandrehe District, namely Simae'asi, Iraonogambo, Sisobambowo, and Sisarahili. Five villages in the West Mandrehe District were also affected, including Lolohio, Iraonogeba, Ononamolo II, Lasarabagawu, and Sisobandrao.

The villages of Sisobambowo, Lologundre, Iraonogaila, and Ono Waembo in Lahomi District are also affected. The villages of Lahagu in North Mandrehe District, Ono Zalukhu You, Hilisoromi, and Lasarabahili in Moro'o District are also affected.

According to Muhari, the BPBD in West Nias Regency is trying to repair the damage to riverbanks, bridges, and road shoulders. Although the floodwaters are gradually receding, he said, residents' gardens and rice fields have also been damaged.
