Heavy Rains Hit Bali's North

Rains Flood Bali's Northern Capital of Singaraja.

(1/11/2010) Heavy rains lasting 3 hours in North Bali on Thursday, January 7, 2010, placed much of the northern capital of Buleleng under water. Many of the city's main roads and a number of homes were partially submerged because of a torrential downpour.

Beritabali.com quotes Ketut Mertada (33) a resident of Kaliuntu in Buleleng who said: "The water was as high as an adult's waist We were not prepared and were only able to save some things. I have sent my children to our in-laws"

Water of a depth of one-meter covered wide areas of Buleleng including, Jalan A Yani Timur, Jalan Anggrek, Jalan Nangka, Jalan Lely, Jalan Tasbih, Jalan Melur, Jalan Seruni and Jalan Kartini.

Meanwhile, in west Singaraja the same rains put most of Jalan A. Yani Barat under water.

During the flooding, a number of trees along Jalan A. Yani in front the Grade Schools 1, 2 and 5 Banyuasri were uprooted.
