As many as 810 joint personnel and 10 dump trucks assisted by citizens conducted a cleanup action in Kedoya Utara Urban Village, Kebon Jeruk, West Jakarta since Sunday (1/5) morning.

" We do it simultaneously in six of eight sub-districts"

This action began with a joint ceremony led by West Jakarta Mayor Rustam Effendi on Jalan Raya Panjang, precisely in front of the Green Garden Housing entrance. Afterwards, hundreds of officers went to the settlements in RT 03, 04, 07 and 08/RW 04 stricken by flooding.

Besides the mayor, there were also the West Jakarta Metro Resort Police Chief Comr. Audie S Latuheru and Military District Command (Dandim) 0414/Belitung commander Lt. Col. Valian Wicaksono.

"We do it simultaneously in six of eight sub-districts, namely Kalideres, Cengkareng, Kebon Jeruk, Grogol Petamburan, Kembangan and Palmerah," expressed West Jakarta Mayor, Rustam Effendi.

He stated that most of the settlements in the six sub-districts have receded. The remaining two locations are still inundated, namely Semanan, Kalideres and Kapuk Urban Village, Cengkareng.

"Similar action would also be done in other sub-districts on the next several days ahead," he told.

Aside that, health posts in a number of flood locations remained open for the next few days to provide health services for flood victims.

"Don't worry our medics are on standby for 24 hours," he closed.
