Marian Locksley's curator insight, February 22, 2013 2:57 AM

Seasonal rains and high tides in recent days have caused widespread flooding across much of Indonesia. North Sulawesi province’s capital city, Manado in Indonesia, was hit by heavy rains that triggered floods and landslides on February 17, 2013 responsible for killing at least 17 people and evacuation 1,200 people. Manado area received 24 cm (9.4 inches) of rainfall during February 16/17, 2013. That was more than half of February average.


A local river in Manado burst at its seems due to heavy rainfall, causing flooding of more than 1.000 homes. Local media reported floodwaters  a meter high in places. Water, which inundated around 5,000 houses in Manado, had receded by the next day and residents had begun cleaning up their homes.
