(7/19/2012)

Unseasonal heavy early-morning rains in Bali on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 caused flash flooding in a number of locations in and around Bali’s capital of Denpasar.

Among the area worst affected were in the Monang-Maning area of Denpasar.

According to Kompas.com, hundreds of homes in that densely populated section of the capital were partially submerged by floodwaters that rose to one-half meter in height when local rivers overflowed their banks.

Areas of Denpasar hit heaviest by the flood were Jalan Gunung Kelimutu , Jalan Patuha and Pemecutan Klod. Tens of homes occupied by 85 families were affected by the rising waters in addition to a number of rented rooms used by local workers.

One local resident, whose home was affected by the floods, complained, “Every time there is heavy rain there is certain to be a flood, it just has to happen.”

Many residents, accustomed to the routine of flooding, managed to evacuate their belongings to higher and dryer locations in their homes. However, a number of people lost prized electronic equipments and bedding materials irretrievably destroyed by the floodwaters.

The flooding began at 9:30 am in Wednesday and had largely subsided by mid-day.
