Four districts and cities on Sumbawa Island, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) were hit by floods and landslides on Friday (9/2).

Head of the NTBAhmadi Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) said that three regencies and one city in the area were hit by floods, namely Sumbawa, Dompu, Bima, and Bima Regencies.

"Allegations of various causes. One of them is evenly rainy on Sumbawa Island with high intensity from noon to evening yesterday," he said as quoted by ANTARA, Saturday, February 10.

In addition, the topography of Sumbawa Island, which consists of hills and mountains, causes runoff water from watersheds (DAS) to accelerate water to the downstream inhabited by residents in urban areas.

"Not to mention our thin forest vegetation, so that it can no longer hold back water is one of the factors causing flooding," said Ahmadi.

For areas that are flooded, most are on the banks of rivers and areas adjacent to the river.

"Currently the water conditions have receded and residents whose houses were flooded are busy cleaning their houses from mud and garbage," explained Ahmadi.

Dari laporan sementara banjir yang melanda empat kabupaten dan kota di Pulau Sumbawa itu tidak menimbulkan korban jiwa. Sedangkan jumlah warga yang terdampak juga masih dalam pendataan BPBD kabupaten dan kota.

"There were no casualties, because many people who live along the river are also ready," he said.
