Flashfloods Hit Gorontalo; Bridge Collapses, 484 Houses Inundated

 A 60-meter long Bondauna Gridge that goes across Bone River in Bone Bolango Regency, Gorontalo Province, collapsed due to the overflow of the river on Saturday(3/6) and flash floods in Gorontalo Regency inundated 484 houses.

South Suwawa district head Rahman Bau explained that the collapse of the bridge was because of heavy rain that has been pouring since Friday (2/6) and it caused Bone River to overflow. Despite connecting Bondauna village, South Sumawa district and Tinemba village of East Suwawa, no areas are isolated due to the collapse of the bridge and there are no injured casualties, Rahman added.

Furthermore, the heavy rain caused flash floods to inundate 484 houses in Gorontalo regent. It caused Marisa River that flows through West Limboto areas, Moloupo River that flows through Limboto areas and Monggelomo River flowing through Tibawa district to overflow.

“Hundreds of houses and agriculture lands in Limboto district, West Limboto district and Tibawa district are also flooded,” National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesperson Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said on Saturday (3/6).

Sutopo added that the water is around 50 to 200 centimeters high. There has been no injured or dead casualties and evacuation is not necessary since floods occur every year, Sutopo said.
