In Jakarta, four people have died as a result of flooding, including a 5-year-old-girl. Over 2,700 people who have been affected by floods are still in temporary shelters. That being said, the scale of the floods was much smaller this year compared to last year. East Jakarta was most affected by the flooding itself. West Jakarta was also affected because an embankment collapsed, causing a river to overflow.
In the Manado area, one person has died and 2,000 residents were evacuated because of flooding and landslides. Another person is still missing.
