Floods hit Jambi province

Jambi, Sumatra (ANTARA News) – Floods hit a number of towns and districts in Jambi Province on Saturday, forcing local people to pack their belongings and move them to safer areas.

The Jambi provincial police had mobilized their personnel throughout the province in anticipation of rising waters and landslides, Adjunct Senior Commissioner Yatin Suyato, a spokesman of the Jambi Police, said here on Saturday.

The policemen were put on standby to help the evacuation of flood victims and provide first aid assistance if needed, he said.

A number of school buildings were also inundated. However, the floods did not affect school activities as Jambi`s students are currently enjoying a year-end vacation.
