    Jakarta: The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) revealed the island of Sumatra has entered  rainy season. BNPB spokesperson Agus Wibowo explained that the agency has been monitoring the country's westernmost large island.

    "It was started from Sumatra. Aceh was first.  It then moved to North Sumatra, West Sumatra, Riau. Now Jambi and South Sumatra are still experiencing transition period," said Head of the BNPB Information and Public Relations Data Center Agus Wibowo at the Sirih Millennium Hotel, Central Jakarta on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.

    Nevertheless, The island of Java does not escape BNPB's monitoring. The Java region is dense and has minimal water absorption. As a result it is easily exposed to the risk of flooding despite low rainfall intensity.

    "However, there are some areas in java region that have not been affected by rain yet," Agus explained.

    He explained that rainy season has several disaster risks. Hurricanes, floods, landslides, and fallen trees may occur. For this reason, community participation is needed to maintain safety.

    "Trim the leafy branches off trees, so it does not collapse," Agus said.
