Indonesian Bureau of Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics announced early warning of extreme climate in East Nusa Tenggara Province on Monday (04/05). The extreme climate happened due to the formation of tropical cyclone Seroja that could trigger extreme weather and cause hydrometeorological disasters in the East Nusa Tenggara region said Dwikorita Karnawati, Head of Indonesian Bureau of Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics.

“The wind vortex reaches 85 kilometers per hour to be really alerted so that the community can be protected, safest. Hopefully there will be no fatalities”  Dwikorita continued in a virtual conference.

Dwikorita explained that based on the latest analysis on Sunday night at 19.00 WIB, it found the seeds of tropical cyclone 99S were in the water position of Rote Islands,  East Nusa Tenggara about 24 kilometers southwest of Kupang.

The birth of the tropical cyclone, she said, was recorded heading east to northeast away from Indonesian territory. However, the movement is fairly slow and still quite close to the land area of  East Nusa Tenggara when it grows into a cyclone.

The Seroja Tropical Cyclone is considered as a hydrometeorology disaster. The formation of the cyclone itself has not been published from extreme climate change around the world. 

“Since April 2nd Indonesian Bureau of Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics detected the birth of 99 S tropical cyclones in Sawu Sea, East Nusa Tenggara” Dwikorita closed the speech.
