So far, a number of areas, specifically in North Jakarta, are facing a drought alert.
“Two areas in North Jakarta got the number of 30-61 referring to the monitoring system of days with no rain (HTH). Those are Rawa Badak and Rorotan,” Ripaldi stated.
To face the dry season, BMKG had issued early warnings and sent weather reports to the related agencies.
“We are trying to anticipate this drought issue earlier,” Ripaldi said.
The people of Jakarta can also make efforts in this regard by using water wisely for every need including irrigation and watering their plants, he stated. (INE)
