BNPB Head monitors latest flood situation in West, Central Kalimantan



Jakarta (ANTARA) - National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) Head Suharyanto surveyed the latest flood situation in West and Central Kalimantan from Saturday to Sunday during his first visit to the disaster-struck areas following his inauguration by the president.

In a written statement received here on Saturday, Suharyanto noted that the survey was conducted as a form of quick response mandated by the president, so that the BNPB will work even harder.

This is important, especially since most of Indonesia is experiencing the rainy season and the presence of La Nina phenomenon that could cause several hydrometeorological disasters, such as floods, landslides, and gale.

"Mister president told us that since this is the disaster season, we have to work immediately," he affirmed.

The first location that he visited was Sintang District in West Kalimantan.

He observed the handling measures there and directly checked the distributed aid and support some time back in order to confirm the delivery to the intended recipient.

In addition, Suharyanto ensured that the emergency response was proceeding well and received on-field information regarding the need for rehabilitation and reconstruction.

After reviewing the flood situation in Sintang, he immediately made his way to Central Kalimantan to survey the flooding in Palangkaraya City and Pulang Pisau.

He remarked that this direct on-field survey was a form of the BNPB head's commitment to always being present amid a disaster at the earliest.

"When disaster strikes, the BNPB will appear as soon as possible to help the people, who were affected, so that they could immediately receive help and avail basic living rights," he expounded.

Earlier, President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) had instructed Suharyanto to promptly fulfill his duty of mitigating natural disasters occurring in various regions.
