Metrotvnews.com reports that a tropical storm sweeping across Western Australia since Tuesday, March 13, 2012, is sending large waves of between four and five meters to the southern and northern shores of the island of Bali.
The head of the Denpasar Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), Nyoman Suarsa, said that commencing Wednesday, March 14, 2012, four-meters were striking the northern shore of Bali, while on the island’s southern shore waves as high as five-meters were being recorded.
This condition is expected to continue until Friday, March 16, 2012, according to Suarsa.
The areas affected by high waves in the south include Nusa Dua, Uluwatu and Kuta beach. The high waves are also bringing high winds and rain to Bali.
On Tuesday high rains caused flooding, bridge failures and landslides in the Bedugul and Kintamani areas of Bali. 6 people lost their lives in landslides that swept through the hillsides of Kintamani on the night of Tuesday, March 13, 2012.
Meanwhile, the straits connecting Java and Bali remain relatively unaffected by the high wave action.
