For the fifth time in 2011 the Celukan Bawang in north Bali and surrounding areas has suffered flash floods. The most severe flooding occurred in Tuesday, February 22, 2011 when around 600 homes on Jalan Raya Singaraja-Gilimanuk were submerged in water and mud.

The homes affected by the floods were in the villages of Celeukan Bawang, Pangulon, Tinga-tinga and Tukad Sumaga. Preliminary damage assessments indicate that 213 homes were flooded to a depth of two meters in the village of Pengulon; 320 homes in the village of Celukan Bawang and 48 homes in the village of Tinga-tinga. While flooding also occurred in the village of Tukad Sumaga, it was reported to be less severe than the other locales.

When the flooding occurred, it caused traffic jams along the Singaraja-Gilmanuk highways near the entrance to the Celukan Bawang port. At that location, a flood of mud mixed with sand left a layer of muck 50 centimeters deep once the waters receded.

A bridge in Tegallantang connecting the community to the Segara Temple was washed away by the flooding. At the height of the storm, a lightning-hit on a villa in Tegallantang caused the structure to burn to the ground.

According to the Bali Post the rains which began at 8:00 am had transformed into a flood a half-hour later. Some local sources are speculating that large flows of water traveling down the rivers encountered damns made of washed away bamboo causing the rivers to overflow their banks.

The flooding only receded at around 4:00 am the following morning.

Authorities have prepared rice and basic food stuff allotments for families displaced by the flooding.
