Heavy rains in late December 2007 caused flooding and landslides in Bali that have been linked to at least two deaths of villagers in Tegalalang, north of Ubud.

Also of spiritual concern to local Balinese Hindus was the damage caused by recent inclement weather to several religious temples across the Island.

On December 23, 2007 the Pura Segara Ulun Danu Batur on Lake Batur near Kintamani, was destroyed by fire following a lightening strike on a ceremonial meru tower. That blaze, which quickly spread to the remaining parts of the temple, is estimated to have caused damages totaling Rp. 600 million ($63,200).

On Thursday, December 27, 2007, two community temples in the Klungkung district were damaged by falling trees uprooted by high winds in combination with heavy rains. Pura Puseh and an adjoining main hall in the seaside community of Kusamba were damaged by high winds which disrupted a religious ceremony underway at the time.

Local windstorms occurring in close time proximity to the Pura Puseh incident damaged the Pura Pasek Gelgel Aan at Banjarangkan, also in the Klungkung district. That event caused heavy damages to a ceremonial hall at the temple.

Winds also damaged a number of local homes and toppled a 30-meter communications tower at the Bank Pembangunan Daerah in Semarapura, Klungkung, temporarily threatening a local police precinct station. The collapsing tower was prevented from hitting the police station by a high-voltage wire. As a precaution, police evacuated the station until the leaning tower could be secured and prevented from collapsing onto the station.

On the other side of the Island, near Pengambengan Beach at Jembrana, high waves flooded a number of simple seaside homes belonging to local residents causing extensive damage.

In Tegalalang, north of Ubud, a young man and his pregnant fiancé were killed in their sleep when a tree collapsed unto a roadside stall.

Localized flooding brought traffic to a standstill in areas near Jimbaran Beach and the Kuta area of Bali. Meanwhile, high winds and waves deposited large amounts of flotsam along Kuta's fabled beachfront on Christmas day. Those winds were also blamed for at least three trees being uprooted along the shoreline boulevard.

As Bali heads towards the busy New Year's period weather forecasters were predicting a continued period of high winds, rains and large waves destined to cause some disruption to holidaymaker’s plans in Bali.
