    During the visit, the President was accompanied by the Public Works and Public Housing minister, National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) Head Doni Monardo, South Kalimantan Governor Sahbirin Noor and Banjar Regent Khalilurrahman.

    "The central government will assist distribution of aid to the evacuees," President Jokowi stated.

    Previously, the President ordered BNPB and other related agencies to immediately send aid that is urgently needed for mitigation measures.

    In addition to that, the President urged the people to remain vigilant against disasters, especially floods and landslides, for there has been extreme increase in rainfall lately.
