(4/24/2010)

The national news agency Antara reports that one person was killed and two injured near Karangasem in East Bali by landslides that occurred on Sunday evening, April 18, 2010. The landslide was precipitated by heavy rains over the preceding days in Karangasem, an area 85 kilometers from Bali's capital city of Denpasar.

The casualties in the Karangasem landslide were bathing in a local river when an adjoining hillside subsided killing a man identified as I Nyoman Rai (35), and injuring two women Ni Nyoman Munir (40) and Ni Nyoman Sari (35).

Heavy rains in Bali also brought flooding to large areas of Kuta on Monday and Tuesday, April 19-20, 2010. Rising waters submerged many main roads including Jalan Kediri in Kuta and parts of the Ngurah Rai Bypass near Nusa Dua. Some of the worst flooding took place near Bali's penitentiary where Jalan Tangkuban Perahu in Kerobokan was submerged beneath 1.5 meters of flood water.

The severe flooding in Kerobokan was occasioned by roads that are actually lower than drainage ditches along the sides of Jalan Tangkuban Perahu. Local government has promised that they will commence a rebuilding of drains in this area within the coming months.
