Expert: Tropical Cyclone Cempaka Will Be Common in Indonesia

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) announced that Tropical Cyclone Cempaka is expected to occur frequently in Indonesia.

On December 2, the tropical cyclone will move away from Java. “The impact [on the weather] will decline to cloudy and light rain,” Tony Agus Wijaya, the head of the Bandung First-Class Geophysics Station of the BMKG, said on Wednesday, November 29.

Tony added that the tropical cyclone could potentially occur in the South Java Sea. However, the cyclone would move away from Java to Australia, he said.

The BMKG is also monitoring the potential of Tropical Cyclone 96S. On November 29, the cyclone was seen in the Indian Ocean about 550 kilometers southwest of Bengkulu.

Armi Susandi, a weather and climate expert with the Bandung Institute of Technology, said Tropical Cyclone Cempaka would be common in the future.

“It is caused by an anomaly of sea temperature increase in Indonesia,” Armi said on Wednesday, November 29.

Tropical cyclones will also threaten the south equatorial regions in Indonesia. To anticipate tropical cyclones, Armi suggested infrastructure developments that would mitigate the impacts of the cyclone.

In addition, Armi recommended the government to consider cyclone potentials when making development policies.
