Tribratanews.polri.go.id – Banjarmasin. Chief of South Kalimantan Regional Police, Police Inspector General Rikwanto, instructs 13 Departmental Police to be on disaster standby. He emphasises regions vulnerable to floods during the rainy season.
"It is almost raining every day, and several areas are flooded even though not extreme, so before the flood, we have to be ready", Chief of South Kalimantan Regional Police said on Friday (12/11).
Chief of South Kalimantan Regional Police said that the importance of personnel ceremony is a form of personnel and equipment preparedness in facing disaster. At the Regional Police level, Water and Air Police and Samapta Directorate and Mobile Brigade Unit are prepared to help if needed in supporting disaster management.
"We asked people to be aware. Report the signs of flood so we could help", Chief of South Kalimantan Regional Police said.
For the personnel, the Chief advised patrolling more to observe water levels in the river so they could anticipate floodings just like the great flood in 2021. National Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Board (BMKG) have warned the La Nina activity that triggers extreme weather in South Kalimantan.
Besides that natural phenomenon that caused colder air and higher rainfall, the turning wind in South Kalimantan also caused the gathering of the air mass, which caused the formation of bad weather clouds. In the last week, high intensity and heavy rain with thunder and heavy wind happened all across South Kalimantan, so flood has started to appear. The high tide also worsens the situation, such as in Banjarmasin.
