According to him, location which currently inundated is different from the one which visited by Jakarta Governor, Anies Baswedan and his subordinates last week. RW 04 and 03 which previously monitored by governor have been safe from flooding because Sunter River didn't overflow as happened before.
"Inundation at RW 02 was not caused by overflowing Sunter River, but due to runoff from Halim Perdanakusuma Reservoir to connecting channel Sulaeman. However, inundation has subsided thanks to good cooperation between joint task forces from related units," he explained.
In overcoming inundation at RW 02, his side also deployed 12 PPSU personnel, 15 SDA Unit personnel, 4 Gulkarmat Sub-agency personnel, 4 Satpol PP personn el, and 9 BPBD Unit personnel.
"We are still deploying 12 PPSU personnel to clean the remaining mud and garbage," he conveyed.
