The Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that Bali’s Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) is warning that Bali’s current spate of inclement weather can be expected to last until mid-February.

The head of Denpasar’s BKMG, I Wayan Suardana, said on Monday, January 21, 2013, “The peak of the rainy season in Bali will continue from January to mid-February. Thus, we have to remain alert for possible medium to heavy downpours, strong winds and high waves until February.”

Heavy rain, strong winds and large waver are predicted for most of Bali with the areas likely to receive the heaviest downpours located in Bedugul, Gianyar, Karangasem, Denpasar and Badung.

Bali is experiencing extreme weather conditions with wind speeds, rainfall and wave heights worse that recorded during the same period one year ago.

Tropical storm centers in Australia have created peripheral weather effects in Bali, bringing huge waves and strong winds. Local fishermen have stayed ashore, unprepared to brave the rough seas and reducing the amount of fresh seafood available in local markets.

Authorities are asking the public’s assistance to prevent destructive flooding by refraining from throwing trash into open drains and rivers.

I Wayan Suardana, head of Denpasar’s BMKG explained: “While agencies maintain rivers and drainage systems to be free from trash blockages and cut down trees that may be uprooted by the strong winds, the residents must also do their part, most importantly by restraining themselves from littering everywhere.”

The head of the Bali Public Works Agency, I Ketut Artika, outlined steps being taken to prevent flooding: “We are taking preventive measures, such as routine drain maintenance and tree-cutting; intensifying our coordination with the Regional Disaster Management Agency; and preparing sandbags and equipment to deal with future landslides.”
