Banjir Bandang Kembali Melanda Kota Bima

March 26, 2017

BIMA, KOMPAS.com  – Banjir bandang kembali melanda Kota Bima, Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB), Minggu (26/3/2017)

Kepala BPBD Kota Bima, H Syarafuddin mengatakan, hujan deras yang turun sejak Minggu siang hingga malam ini menyebabkan sejumlah sungai di Kota Bima meluap ke permukiman warga di beberapa kecamatan.   “Banjir mulai memasuki permukiman warga sekitar pukul 17.00 Wita,” kata Syarafuddin kepada wartawan, Minggu malam.

Adapun sejumlah kecamatan yang diterjang banjir di antaranya Rasanae Barat, Mpunda, Raba dan Asakota. “Ketinggian air rata-rata mencapai 50 sampai 75 sentimeter,” kata Syarafuddin.  Ia juga mengatakan, banyak warga dari empat wilayah itu yang telah keluar menyelamatkan diri dari terjangan banjir.

Selain mengungsi di masjid, sebagian warga memilih mengungsi ke rumah kerabatnya atau bertahan ke lantai dua rumahnya masing-masing.  Syarafuddin mengatakan, di samping membangun tenda, pihaknya telah menyediakan logistik untuk keperluan korban banjir yang ada ditempat pengungsian.  “Untuk sementara kami baru menyediakan makanan siap saji untuk korban banjir,” ujar dia.

Ia mengatakan, potensi hujan lebat di Kecamatan Wowo, wilayah timur Kabupaten Bima, menyebabkan air di sejumlah sungai di Kota Bima meluap dengan cepat. “Air sungai naik secara cepat karena hujan lebat terjadi di hulu,” ujar dia lagi.

Derasnya hujan kembali mengguyur wilayah setempat juga merendam sebagian jalan raya. Akibatnya, arus lalu lintas di lokasi rawan banjir, seperti di Jalan Soekrano Hatta, lumpuh total.   “Air meluber sampai ke jalan raya dengan ketinggian sampai 75 sentimeter. Para pengendara terpaksa dialihkan oleh petugas ke jalan alternatif lainnya,” ujar Syarafuddin.

A series of flash floods that hit Bima municipality and Bima regency, both in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), earlier this week, have displaced over 100,000 local residents and have paralyzed economic activity in the region, local authorities have said.

NTB Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPPD) head Muhammad Rum said on Saturday the flash floods, which swept through the region on Wednesday and Friday following hours of heavy rainfall, had inundated 33 subdistricts, home to a total of 105,000 people.   “Today [Saturday], the floods have started to recede. Some people have left evacuation shelters to return to their homes,” Rum said.

The NTB provincial administration claimed that, as of Saturday, no deaths had been reported from the floods.  The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) also stated that the two affected regions would be given an emergency status for 14 days until Jan. 4, 2017.   The BNPB reported on Thursday that the flash floods were caused by Cyclone Yvette in the Indian Ocean, some 620 kilometers south of Denpasar, Bali.
