According to Jakarta Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD), prolonged heavy rain has caused the Ciliwung River to overflow, and led to a sudden increase in the water level at the Katulampa Dam in Bogor, reaching dangerous levels. Heavy rains have also caused landslides leading to road closures and traffic diversion. The flood has the potential to affect the following areas: Puncak, Depok, Rawa Jati, Kalibata, Pengadegan, Pejaten, Kebayoran Baru, Balekambang, Cililitan, Cawang, Bidara Cina, Kampung Melayu, Manggarai (near Menteng area), and Pesangrahan.
