Late Tuesday 10 May (local time) UNJLC Banda Aceh (INDONESIA) received reports of impassable sections of road along the MEULABOH-CALANG route.
Due to heavy rains for the past few days, some parts of the road between KUALA BEE and ARONGAN are still inundated with water.
In some locations, the water is about a meter in height.
There is also a 4 km stretch of newly created road (a bypass stretch replacing the previous coastal stretch that was washed away on 26 December) that has become muddy. Even with 4X4 vehicles, negotiating this road will be very difficult.
Laksamana.Net - Agriculture Minister Anton Apriyantono has brushed aside concerns that recent floods could lead to a rice shortage in Indonesia later this year.
"There is no indication that we will face rice shortage this year," he was quoted as saying Tuesday (3/5/05) by state news agency Antara.
He said Indonesia did not have to import rice from other countries because domestic product of unhusked rice at the end of this year is predicted to reach 53 million tons.
Flash floods hit Aceh Tenggara District and killed 15 people, injured 18 others and 29 people are still reported as missing.
Nine volcanoes and ten disaster prone areas are now under close watch. President S.B. Yudhoyono requests governors to pay special attention to the possibilities of the occurrence of any geological disasters and prepare for an early warning system.
