TRIBUNBATAM.id, LINGGA - Heavy rainfall in Lingga Regency, Riau Islands Province is predicted to re-occur on Wednesday (11/3/2021) tomorrow. 

The potential for rain will occur in all regions or sub-districts in Lingga Regency. 

This is based on the forecast of the Class III Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Department (BMKG) Dabo Singkep, Riau Islands. 

Rain is predicted to occur in the Daik Islands and Singkep Islands with moderate to heavy rainfall in the morning. 

The potential for rain accompanied by lightning is also expected during the day. 

Head of BMKG Dabo, Sahat Mauli Pasaribu, said the wind direction was from the West to the Northwest with wind speeds of 5 to 30 kilometers (km) per hour. 

"The height of the sea waves is predicted to be low to medium, with a height of 1.25 to 2.50 meters," said Sahat, according to data received by Tribunbatam.id, Tuesday (11/2/2021). 

Meanwhile, the surface current on tomorrow will be variable, around 5 to 30 centimeters per second. 

Sahat also appealed to the entire community to be aware of the potential for moderate to heavy rain, which could increase the height of sea waves in the morning and afternoon.

"This includes the Bintan waters, Lingga waters, the Berhala Strait waters, and the northern waters of Bangka," he said. 

Previously, due to heavy rains in the Singkep Pesisir area, a number of houses in Kote Village were affected by the flood last Monday. 

All residents are asked to remain vigilant for any potential dangers that occur due to heavy rains.
