TRIBUNBATAM.id - The Field Coordinator (Korlap) of the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG), Sugarin, said that the weather with high winds and waves on Wednesday (13/1/2021) disrupted the search process for Sriwijaya Air SJ 182. 

Reported by Kompas.com, he said that this condition had occurred since 07.00 WIB. 

"The wind speed reaches 20 knots, so, with this high wind speed, the sea waves are high enough. Thus, it can interfere with evacuation and search plans," said Sugarin at the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) 2 Tanjung Priok, Wednesday. 

He continued, his party also predicts high waves to reach more than 0.5 to 2 meters. 

The wave was about 2 meters high, according to Sugarin, very disturbing the evacuation of victims. This is because the rescue ships will find it difficult to maneuver.

However, he predicted that weather conditions like this would not last long. He predicted that the weather will improve and this means that the wind speed will decrease. 

As is known, the search for Sriwijaya Air SJ 182 aircraft has entered its fifth day on Wednesday (13/1/2021).

The Sriwijaya Air plane for the Jakarta-Pontianak route was found to have lost contact between Laki Island and Lancang Island, Kepulauan Seribu, on Saturday at around 14:40 WIB. 

Four minutes after takeoff, the plane carrying 62 people consisting of six crew, 46 adult passengers, seven children and three babies crashed. 

The Sriwijaya Air SJ 182 plane had left the flight path, which was heading to the northwest at 14:40 WIB.

The Air Traffic Controller (ATC) then asked the pilot about the plane's flying direction. However, within seconds, the plane reportedly lost contact and finally fell into the sea. (*)
