Extreme weather and bad environmental practice are being blamed for 29 separate natural disasters in Bali during the month of January 2011.

Records kept by the Disaster Prevention and Control Center (Pusdalpos-Bali) listed five separate types of natural disasters befalling Bali in January. Broken down there were 6 floods, 2 high tides, 2 landslides, 13 minor tornadoes and 6 fires. These events are blamed for injuries to 15 Bali residents, 5 deaths and property damage to 57 homes.

Disaster specialists are concerned that 2011 will see an increase in natural disasters taking place in Bali. During the entire year of 2010 there was a total of 233 events or an average of 19.4 per month. Of those 233 incidents - 29 were due to high winds and small tornadoes, 75 landslides, 56 fires, 2 earthquakes, 32 floods, 35 heavy rainstorms resulting in property damage and 4 high waves. Natural disasters in Bali in 2010 were blamed for 7 deaths and 15 injuries.

Putu Anom Agustina, the chief of Pusdalpos-Bali told Bali Post that his disaster prevention teams was on standby-by 24 hours a day to respond to any emergency situation.

Separately, the chief of the local Peoples Protection and Unity Agency (Kesbanglinmas-Bali), Nyoman Silanawa, revealed that the provincial government of Bali has allocated Rp. 20 billion (US$2.2 million) for disaster relief in 2011, an increase of 42% over the Rp 14 billion budgeted in 2011.
