Heavy rains in Bali during a political event

Heavy rains began on the island of Bali on the final day of the G20 summit. Nusa Dua, South Kuta, Bandung and other areas of the island were flooded.

Due to a heavy downpour, serious traffic jams formed on the island from cars with passes to the summit area. The rain also brought chaos to the order of movement of the motorcades.

It is reported that a lot of soaked journalists gathered in the press center of the summit. It rained for about two hours, as a result of which several highways were flooded.

Earlier, the Agency of Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics of Indonesia reported that in the previous days of the summit, the country’s authorities sprayed about 29 tons of reagents in the sky over Bali for the sake of improving the weather.

According to the head of the agency Dvikorita Karnavati, this is part of the scenario that has been prepared in case of extreme weather conditions during the G20 summit. In total, the aircraft made at least 28 sorties before November 16. The operation took place in cooperation with the Indonesian Air Force and the Ministry of Transport.
