(1/14/2013)

Rains and heavy winds on Wednesday and Thursday (January 9-10, 2013) swept over most of Bali. While causing damage to a number of homes and resulting in falling trees, the weather is also blamed for at least two deaths – a 52-year-old junior high school teacher in Tabanan and a 53-year-old fisherman on Nusa Penida Island.

Denpasar

In North Denpasar the high winds demolished a 60-meter length of wall on Jalan Nangka Selatan. That incident injured two men, damaged 8 motorcycles, and caused property damage to a local home. More homes were substantially damaged in Abiansemal and Sibang Gede areas of Denpasar.

15 trees fell in various locations across Denpasar, sending at least one person to hospital.

Another 25-year-old man from Lombok was badly injured when he was hit by flying plywood on Jalan Iman Bonjol.

Bangli

A private home in Penglipuran Village was damaged by a falling coconut tree.

Klungkung

In Klungkung three religious sites were destroyed by high winds. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

A 53-year-old local man fishing in the surf at Nusa Penida Island was killed when waves washed him out to sea on Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

Karangasem


NusaBali reports that 15 households that were home to 76 people were evacuated in Purwakerti Village (Banjar Amed), Karangasem on Wednesday, January 11, 2013, when high waves overran the coastal area. The waves left houses partially submerged in 70 centimeters of water.

In addition to the damage to homes, the high waves also demolished 7 traditional sailing boats (jukung) used by village fishermen.

Also in Karangasem, a large tree that fell due to the winds took three days to remove and reopen the road connecting Nyalian and Bungbungan. The delay in removing the tree occurred when local community members sought permission to ceremoniously cut the Pule tree for use in preparing Barong’s for sacred cermonial dances.

The ferry crossing at Padang Bai was closed for much of the day on Thursday, January 10, 2013 due to high seas.

Homes along the beach at Panti Ahmed were also inundated by waves and seawater.

Tabanan

In Tabanan a temple at Bogan Village was damaged by high winds. The cost of the resulting destruction was put at Rp. 200 million (US$2,000).

Buleleng

The bad weather also sent waves crashing ashore at Sansgit and Paben Villages in Buleleng, North Bali and flooded 22 households there with seawater.

Tens of houses were reported to have been hit by high waves in villages along the shoreline of Buleleng including the villages of Kubu Kelod, Bungkulan, Sawan and Kubutambahan

Jembrana

Three buildings were damaged in the village of Munduk Asem (Cupel Village) on Wednesday by high waves.
